A very quick visit to Charleston, WV (CRW)

Houston, TX 10 Oct. 2009.  I would rather be heading to the beaches of Oahu, but the flights are full this weekend.  Instead I started to look down the list of cities that Continental serves and found that Asheville, NC (AVL) was not available, but Charleston, WV (CRW) was. I then got ready and jumped in the weekend rental car that I have and headed for the airport at about 9:07a.  As its a Satur...
