Flying...

Sitting at the gate... finally... waiting to board my flight to San Francisco to get to Houston. What a mess...

... all the canceled American Airlines flights have this airport backed up like crazy. The line to the check out counter went all the way outside and took more than 30 minutes- it is normally only about 10 at the most. But I'm here and soon I'll be there.

UPDATE- Finally in Houston after sitting on the runway in San Francisco for an extra hour due to "maintenance" issues...

.. so I'm having a beer and some dinner. Waiting for my ride to show up and get me from the airport, but they are stuck in traffic coming from east Texas. As soon as I get to the hotel, I'm building the bike and going for a ride! I gotta get my legs stretched out after sitting in airports and on planes all day.

Oh yeah... and I got upgraded to 1st Class on my flight from SD to SF... but 1st Class on a 1.5 hour flight is kind of a let down... but I'm not complaining.

Southern Cal to Northern Cal to go southeast? Sounds strange...hope the flight is much more smooth than the check in! Have a blast this weekend!

Doesn't Southwest have a flight direct from SD to Texass? Who is your travel agent?
