Travel Update [Dec. 24th, 2004|04:28 am]
[Current Mood |tiredtired]

We're now about to leave Denver on our way to San Francisco... Our home but not our destination. Our luggage is in Portland and we hope to land, someday, in Seattle.

Kit says she'll post when she stops swearing on every third word.

Thanks for offers of assistance/accomodation in Seattle, but a ride has already been arranged back down to Portland.


We're now in San Francisco International. Despite being so close to home, we're forging ahead to Seattle. Sorta like Portland. Just 170 miles off course. But arrangements have been made and, though these things are never certain, it's looking promising that we'll make it to the folks' house for Christmas Eve.

We're also feeling a bit better. We got a good four hours sleep at a hotel in Denver. That, plus drugs, have helped to keep my migraines in check, too. ("Hooray for chemicals!")

(Thanks again for sympathies and offers of accomodation!)

I'm sorry to hear your vacation has been so messed up. This'll make a heck of a story for you guys to tell in the future, I'm sure. But hang in there. I'm sure you two can improvise some fun to make the best of it.

Every third word? Sounds like she's singing a rap song. :)

Dad's printed up the direction and is getting ready to head north. We will have something food and libation like ready for you when you walk in the door. Now I had better go feed the squirles.

Hot tea and soft armchairs are about what I need right now. Neither are easily found in airports.

Could be worse, Andy's boss was supposed to go from Florida to Columbus, Ohio the same day as you went west. Poor Reed is still stuck in Florida without a flight to anywhere. Hope to see you soon!

How long you going to be in the Portland area? Give me a call if you still have my number and will still be around Tuesday or later.

Not long. I don't have a lot of vacation days, so we're flying back Sunday evening. Basically, we're here just long enough for a family Christmas and then it's... more airline joy!
