An Adventure Begins

Dateline: June 20, 2014 (Morning)

One of the best ways to learn new things is to hit the road and see new places. Today, E and I are putting that into practice. After our alarm rang at 3:30 AM, we headed off to explore a little bit of Alaska. (Many heartfelt thanks to our daughter, B, who also got up very early to take us to the airport.)

I haven’t traveled by air with my guitar in quite a long time, so this counts as a “new” aspect of traveling. Back in the day, there was a lot less competition for space in the overhead bins. Today, with everyone jockeying for position in order to get their behemoth luggage pieces in the bins, in order to avoid the checked baggage fee, I was a little concerned. On the first flight, from Rochester to Chicago, it was no problem at all. Rather than putting the instrument in an overhead bin, I was instructed to ask the flight attendant to store it in the closet at the front of the aircraft. I even got to participate as one of the privileged few who can “pre-board” (whatever that means.)

 

I took advantage of some of the extra time in Chicago (a nearly 4-hour layover) to do some writing.
