I'm going to assume that you went to the base in Dayton... I have a friend that works there.

My last company sent several of us on some nice trips. Last year they sent a co-worker and I to Miami Florida for 3 weeks for training on the new GDS system we were to create (we bought the API and made the application from there). We were given a company credit card and had a limit of $125 a day (combined for both of us) for food/transportation, and were paid a per diem of $75 a day on top of our normal pay.

How about a 30 mile train ride into Chicago? Don't travel, yet, although I may be training others in the next year and get to go all over the country.
