This essay is about flying to flight service stations (FSS) when they were spread across the nation at small, country airports, until the 1990s when they were combined into several large flight service centers. In the old days, you could fly to an FSS on Christmas Eve in the middle of nowhere, and there would be the attendant in the cozy room, ready to provide any information you needed about weather conditions, just talk for a bit, get warmed up, take a potty break, get a drink from the water fountain, and sit and relax before taking off on your next leg.
