Did ya miss me?
So I am sure you are all wondering about how the trip went and if we managed to secure housing. Well I am kinda mean and going to make you wait a bit. I am first going to discuss the joys of air travel..... it sucks! The nice thing was that the plane did not snap in two and crash land on a mysterious tropical island.
We went bargain basement with our airline tickets and I totally regretted it. Our flight went from San Fransisco to San Diego to Phoenix where we had to change planes to get to Kansas City. That is a lot of stops! The worst was the Phoenix- Kansas City leg. The plane was packed to the gills and we ended up in the tail section, which as any Lost fan knows is an almost certain death sentence.
I almost lost it when the lady in front of me leaned her seat back. I was already giving up so much personal space and that was the last straw. If I had been using any metal knitting needles at that moment, they would have been shoved into that lady's head. I guess the security precautions are there for more than the chance that the plane might get hijacked. It also did not help that there was a lot of turbulence to add to the fun.
When we got our rental car the gal at the desk tried to get us to upgrade, calling our economy car cramped. Well, once I got in the car I breathed a sigh of relief, after the airplane the car almost seemed enormous. I think that next time I fly I am going to the extra money for a more direct flight. I don't mind one stop but the flight over was just ridicules. It did not help that to get to the airport on time we had to get up at 3:30 in the morning.
