Wichita, Kansas (KSNW) – A holiday trip can mean a 14-hour drive to Utah to meet your family.
“It’s really just a family. After all, that’s what it’s all about,” said Curtis Elm, who returned with the girls after meeting his family in Utah on Sunday. “But it’s worth the drive. I just drove. To see the country. Tell the girl how it was done for the whole thing.”
Some drove, others appreciated the airport for its smooth voyage.
The airport expected the busiest number of travelers on Sunday, about 2.4 million, since the pandemic began.
“The security line was about an hour, so I’m happy to get there early,” said Sam Schouten, who returned to Wichita from Colorado. “It was very smooth.”
Raymon Miles was worried about flying Chandler back to school on Monday.
“So there were some concerns and definitely he had to go back to school on Monday,” Miles said. “It makes us nervous about having to return him to the plane.”
Some drove home at the end of the holiday weekend, while others worked to work overtime.
“I was willing to spend my Thanksgiving work, so I was able to travel with my family,” said truck driver Jaime Sanchez. “That will be our Christmas gift.”
According to Curtis, the drive with the family has been a long way. He also says that riding a car with his family is another thing to thank for this long weekend.
“It’s just time with my family,” Curtis said.
