Back in the saddle
November 21, 2011 by Dave Haynes
OK, back from a very busy few days in California and Oregon, and a buncha airplane rides that included landing gear that wouldn’t go up, ground fog and turbulence. Whee!
Things I learned traveling: you can rent a car now without ever talking to anyone (Alamo kiosks), major hotels think offering less than 20 TV channels on crappy old CRTs is OK (Embassy Suites — pffffft) and while Portland’s airport is very nice and has street pricing, the little downstairs gate it has for shuttle flights is about the size of a college dorm room and is pretty much ridiculous at 5:30 AM.
And my e-mail accounts barely worked all week (thanks GoDaddy —- pffft).
On the other hand, a great few days in just about every other way. Now to pull all the receipts out of everywhere in my bags and pockets …
Back to blogging. New posts to follow shortly.
