Early tomorrow morning I fly to New York to attend the Biglari Holdings shareholder meeting. This will be my first time attending. The CEO of the company reminds me of a young Warren Buffett and I would like to think I'm an early investor in what may become a profitable venture. I haven't been to New York since my dad took us when I was twelve. I'm not looking forward to figuring out the public transit system, but taking public transportation from the airport costs $2.50 versus about $50 for a taxi.
After the meeting I am shopping a hotel in Times Square. Since my dinner and breakfast the next morning will be covered it makes this a frugal trip.
I haven't closed on the new house yet. The agent has had me sign several revisions to the contract. I haven't made any special requests; I suspect I am dealing with an inexperienced agent. I'm not too bothered by any delays this causes: we are flying to Omaha next Friday for the Berkshire Hathaway meeting and then to Las Vegas on the 10th so I won't have much time to work on the property until the end of May.
