Jon Keller's Thanksgiving Travel Tips

BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Tomorrow is the big day, when the toughest problem you’re likely to face is how to navigate the political conversation around the dinner table.

I’ll have more to say about that aspect of Thanksgiving tomorrow at this time.

But today, for most of us, the challenge is getting there. Unless you’re lucky enough to be able to walk to your destination, or don’t even have to leave the house, chances are you will be getting there by car, train or plane.

And luckily, I have some very useful tips for making that chore as bearable as possible.

First, for the drivers – patience is your best friend today. You know there will likely be traffic, but everyone is in the same boat, and you will get there eventually.

However, I do feel compelled to once again speak out about the apparently-growing problem of hesitant drivers, especially the ones who want to take a turn, and the road is clear ahead of them, but they just can’t pull the trigger on it, inching forward as if there’s a dozen eggs loose on the dashboard.

Allow me to speak for you, the driver stuck behind them – go. Go! GO! GOGOGO!

For those of you flying, you have my deepest sympathy.

All you can do is sit quietly once your flight lands and feel superior to the folks who instantly jump up in the aisle, where they stand for 15 minutes until the doors open.

And for you folks taking the train, let’s face it, seats in the quiet car will be hard to find.

So here’s a plea to the passengers who always seem compelled to hold mind-numbingly dull conversations at high volume for the benefit of all their fellow travelers – save it for the dinner table tomorrow.

Perhaps your family members want to hear your drivel; I’m quite sure no one else does.
