We did finally take off about 3:30 – so far, 1.5 hours in the airport, 2 hours sitting on the plane, 1 hour in the air. So, in only the time it takes to go coast to coast I was able to go 400 miles!
At least this time I’m traveling with people – I normally go “solo”. Didn’t have to eat dinner by myself. That is always nice (nothing worse than a dinner by yourself in a restaurant).
Just finished another seminar this morning, waiting to go to the airport where I’ll undoubtedly have to wait again (rain in Chicago). Fortunately this time it is headed home. Sometimes wish I could travel somewhere for a week – or 2 or 3 days in the same place more often. Those trips seem not half as bad on the travel side, but then again – they are almost always “solo” trips.
Good thing I have an air card, always (mostly) have a network where ever I go – but stuck in the back of a plane with my laptop wasn’t working yesterday. I have this laptop and it barely fits from armrest to armrest (17” screen – very nice, highly recommended if you are going for a desktop replacement) let alone with the lid open on a plane (except in business class).
On the plane, I tend to read mostly, never pull out the laptop. I consider that “my time”.
