I hereby declare…


…that I am sick of airplane travel! I’ve flown nearly 20,000 miles in two months…all on standby. You know it’s bad when you know every drink they serve, what foods are in each color snack box, the FAA regulations, the TSA regulations, and how to navigate at least 5 airport terminals like the back of your hand. I just got home from California, and I had another awful Minneapolis layover. It included two aircraft downgrades, two bumped flights, and two gate changes. MSP is a fairly large airport, that requires more walking that most. In the 3 hours I was in Minny, I walked at least 75 minutes, lugging my heavy carry-on suitcase with my week’s-worth of trip junk.

I do NOT want to fly again until I go to Boston for St. Patricks Day!!!

Here’s the quick overview of my days in Cali:
