It seems that I’ve got really bad travel karma (see Mauipocolypse and Mauipocolypse 2.0) .
I’m currently sitting at the gate in Orlando airport because my original flight (scheduled for 7:15am) was canceled due to weather in Chicago. The worst part was the fact I had to wake up at 3:30am for the airport shuttle bus.
After they announced that the flight was canceled, they sent everyone back to get their luggage and then to the ticket counter to get re-booked.
So I got rebooked for a later flight … with a connection through DFW.
Luckily, when I told Ginny about my flight change … she was able to find an earlier direct flight, so I’ll be home in the early afternoon.
Hopefully the weather in Chicago clears up and this flight doesn’t have problems.
Keep your fingers crossed.
OK, this is pretty cool … I’m on my way to the COMMON Conference in Orlando … and, just before the flight leaves, Ginny sends a text telling me that the blogs are down.
I use the TouchTerm app on my iPhone … but can’t figure out what is going on.
Luckily the flight I’m on has WiFi available … $9.95 for the flight.
Well, I have nothing better to do on the fight (other than read my Wired magazine, which isn’t all that interesting), so I plunk down the fee and log in.
Ha! I’ll bet you thought the Mauipocolypse odyssey was over?
Not by a long shot!
I’m sure you all heard about the tsunami that hit Hawaii.
Well, this threw the entire air traffic transportation system for a loop … at least in relation to travel to & from the islands.
