Business travel generally means long days, but travel to military functions means an extra early start to the day. I wouldn't mind it all so much if there was a chance to truly unwind in the evening, but traveling with others means that you don't get to do that until after dinner - if then. And you have to make dinner conversation – not something I'm especially good at. After a 12 hour day, I really do want to be alone in the evening just to clear my own head, but when traveling that takes me a couple of hours.
