Hello all fellow travel lovers, IAHF* LYR here another Marriott Insider refugee hoping to be able to learn as well as help with fellow travelers on this site.

About me:

  • Raised in northeast Cleveland, Ohio, blessed enough to move to sunny southwest Florida where I finished high school in Ft. Myers. Now reside north of Houston in The Woodlands, Texas, for the past 36 years.
  • A retired Air Traffic Controller who worked in the Tower and Approach Control at Houston Intercontinental Airport (IAH) for the last 29 years of my career after four years in the U.S. Army as a controller at Ft. Bragg, N.C. Very luck and fortunate to have had the career I did, but I don't miss it after being retired for more than seven years now. ATC was very rewarding and challenging while allowing me to stay closely connected to aviation which is something I totally love. You'll find out that I am a true AV Geek which was one of the Insider threads that was loved by many.
  • Private Pilot with over 1,400 hours of flying mainly single engine craft, some multi-engine/turbo-prop and lucky enough to have flown numerous hours in the former Continental Airlines Level D flight sims as they were housed here at IAH. Logged hours in the MD80, B735, B752, B772 and B788 sims. Yep lucky dude! No longer current flying as renting planes is not what I want to do anymore.
  • Travel is now a hobby along with golf, gym rat, bicycle riding, wine, beach and hanging out with friends/family.
  • Loyalty programs member of is Lifetime Titanium at Marriott, Lifetime Gold United Airlines from being a millionmiler with Continental Airlines and last 20,000 miles of it with United. Hertz Gold Star and Diamond Hilton Honors.

Looking forward to putting up my blog in coming days titled "A View From The Tower".

Thank you,

IAHFLYR

It basically is in my profile just not all of it, so I'll copy it there. I saw some others do similar post in the introduction spot, but guess that is not the right place?

It is actually quite good that new members such as yourself do introduce themselves like this - at least that way other members know who you are. And, like, Vic_IV says, it's also good to have this in your profile too. The number of new members we get who don't fill in anything in their profile is unbelievable - and often referenced when they start a new thread.

Enjoy your time here on TravellersPoint - since you're a pilot, I'm guessing you'll love the travel map feature. :):)

Thanks much. I'm learning the map feature very slowly.....wish I could post dates as month only without requiring the exact travel dates.

When I joined TP I added all my old trips to my map and just made a guess as to the exact date
