There's only one small problem when traveling by air. That's going to the airport. That is just a miserable experience. It's a huge pain in the butt. It's always way too crowded with not enough people working. It takes forever to maneuver through security and that's no fun at all. I flew out of O'Hare last year and it was worse than ever.

Going through security at O'Hare Airport is a total nightmare. It's like five super highways dumping into one neighborhood street. There are so many do's and don'ts it's hard to keep track. Of course, the majority of the passengers don't pay attention to the rules or don't think they apply to them. TSA is confiscating items left and right.
