Private air travel
Over the years I've got to have some pretty amazing commutes. For ski patrol there was the pre-dawn CAT rides to the top of the mountain with a backpack full of dynamite. The Forest Service delivered us to remote fires via helicopter. With the Coast Guard, I got to drive a rescue boat out to our 'work' on the water. Then I had the pleasure of 'commuting' by C-130 and Twin Otter in Antarctica.
But nothing is as good as commuting by G-3 to a remote military base in Alaska. The coffee and snacks in the back were self-serve, but the views of the Alaska and Brooks Range outside Anchorage more than made up for it.
