If you ever watch NFL games,
you've probably noticed one
of the league's premier refs,
Ed Hochuli. Here's his take
on travel and adventure.
What type of work do you do?
I have two jobs. I'm a lawyer at Jones, Skelton
& Hochuli, a law firm I helped found 35 years
ago. I'm also a referee in the National Football
League, where I've been for 25 years.
So that means you travel a lot.
BRING SOMETHING TO KEEP
LIFE IS AN ADVENTURE, AND
IF YOU ENJOY
THE ADVENTURE, IT
DOESN'T MATTER WHAT IT
THE WAY - IT'S
JUST PART OF
For six months out of the year, I'm traveling
every week for football. I work everywhere
except my home city, San Diego. Half the
teams in the NFL are in the Eastern time zone,
and I'm coming from California. I also travel
probably just as much for my law practice,
because I have clients all over the country.
On average I probably travel a couple of days
a week. Sometimes I recognize the flight
attendants and the pilots, and sometimes they
Obviously you're a Dividend Miles member. Where
do you like to use your earned miles?
My wife and I like to travel internationally,
so most of our miles get used on that. We take
at least one trip a year. This past spring, we
went to Australia and met some of my kids
and grandkids and spent two weeks over there.
The year before, we went to Indonesia. One of

Are there any destinations on your wish list?
There are so many. We're currently trying
to decide where we're going next year. We've
talked about Greece, China, Japan, and
If you could take only three items on your next trip,
what would they be?
I have a coffee mug with me all the time.
I researched and found the best travel mug that
keeps coffee hot the longest. I've got to have my
music with me, so a nice set of headphones.
The third thing I need you supply on the
plane, and that's the fig bars. They went away
for awhile, and now they're back. They're in the
snack basket, and you've got the greatest fig
bars in the world in there.
Window or aisle?
I prefer aisle, but even more important than
window or aisle is bulkhead. I'm one of the few
people, I suppose, who prefers bulkhead.

my kids, two grandkids, and son-in-law live
there right now, so we went to see them and
that part of the world. So obviously it's nice to
have miles. When you travel long distances
like that, it's nice to be able to fly First Class,
in style [laughs]. You can sleep in ease on those
