This coming week, I will be spending a LOT of time on airplanes. I’m joining with Henry Harteveldt to complete the Oakland California Corridor Challenge which will showcase the return of higher frequency flying between Oakland and Southern California as the pandemic wanes. I have regular posts scheduled for all next week, so nothing changes there (except no Friday links are likely). If you want to follow along, I will primarily be posting on Twitter using #OAKCCC.
Disclosure: Oakland is paying for flights, hotels, and food while we’re doing this.
