Since I am based in West Palm Beach, Florida, (KPBI) but live in Tampa, a three and a half hour drive away, it is bad luck when we have an overnight in KPBI. The company assumes I live there, and I therefore have to find and pay for my own hotel. The FBO, Galaxy, has a great arrangement with the airport Hilton, but finding space in the high season can be dicey and expensive. One night, I could only find a room at the La Quinta, yet when I got there, they told me they were full. “This happens a lot,” said the completely disinterested desk clerk as she watched me saddle up and head out the door.
