Made it to Toronto

Well, I made it.

Darn, I forgot to bring my [titanium] spork.

I got a bowl of fruit (various melon chunks [and some cherries]), but no utensils to eat them with :(

Darn, free Internet in the Courtyard....blocking my IRC.

Though I wonder what TSA would've done when they pulled my spork out.... They didn't take to kindly when I discovered that I forgot to leave my leatherman at home/work.

I was thinking of getting something else [to replace the leatherman].... guess that excuse has materialized.

Now to go find some drugs....I think I've come down with something....my nose started running this morning, and I got stuffed up just as we were starting the descent in Toronto....

Re: I'm starting to hate flying

I'm also getting to experience trying to access my email at near blinding speeds of dialup via Blackberry [pulse] modem...

Guess I'll wait until I'm back at the airport where there is free wifi :o

Re: I'm starting to hate flying

Well, a quick phone call and at least the dates for my return now make sense.

Now I can hardly wait to see what all the calls I've been making on by Blackberry are going to set me back....

Re: I'm starting to hate flying

Well, afer working things out.... I think?

i'm spending the night in a hotel courtesy of US Airways [flight delay due to Mechnical]. And continuing out at 12:01p to Toronto via Denver... Arriving 8:59p. [Not much earlier than the direct flight from KC at 6p would get there]. Good thing my brother pushed the wedding to Sunday. :)

They also changed my return, because United gave away my return flight for missing the out flight. Now I'm leaving Toronto much earlier... [so to not extend my trip further than scheduled] So that I can lay over in Kansas City for 7 hours!

Darn hotel here has no free Internet.

The only strange thing is the United website has my revised itinerary going from Toronto to Denver in the morning of June 18, connecting with a flight from Denver to Kansas City flying in the afternoon of June 16! Still the same late night flight into Manhattan on the 18th.

I'm starting to hate flying

My flight out of MHK is delayed and I might not have time to check into the other leg in KC [non-stop to YYZ]... They can't get me confirmed for that flight from here :(

Homeward Bound?

Here I am, at the gate (C31) at YYC waiting for my first leg to DEN.

The departure is scheduled for 1150, but it is now 1136 and the plane that was to come from DEN at 1116 hasn't arrived yet. Though I'm not worried yet about making the next leg of DEN to MCI.

What might worry me is what time I'll finally reach home in MHK. Hopefully the delays won't impact that final leg, and I can get home at a reasonable time to rewarm things without impacting my heating schedule too much or at all.

Bound for Calgary

Is off to a slow start. I'm still in Manhattan as I type this. I overheard somebody else saying that the earlier times with KCI Roadrunner Express have better drivers... now I wonder if they meant the driving or how together they have things.

Well, we are finally off!

This is another test post

Once again a test post from my new Blackberry, hoping that maybe the reason the message got MIME'd was one special character getting my way....

Electric outlets are hard to find...

...in airport terminals. Even harder are the ones that are accessible and not already in use.

Anyways I'm here at ORD, where my MCI to DEN flight got rerouted to due to technical difficulties. They were having problems with the weather radar, and they would be flying into it going to DEN, so it rerouted to ORD. Where they implied that they would switch planes to continue to DEN, or reroute connecting passengers from ORD.

Well, by the time they got into the air, my options for making it to Calgary became limited. Both late, either direct or via DEN. But they cancelled the continuation to DEN.... So much for the assurance that they would take care of getting me to Calgary in time automatically.

I was informed that my original DEN to YYC flight was on time. Great!

And the scheduled 2 hour layover didn't help.

Oh well.... So much for United being the OnTime Airline.

My Mobile Blog Christening

Okay, enough with the test messages and write something else on my Blackberry to intro this part of my blog.

As you may or may not know, I was rather prolific in moblogging to my Blogspot during my recent move. During which I thought about why wasn't I doing this to my own blog site.

So I tried to set it up via my laptop in one of the hotel rooms along the way. The experience didn't go well, and for a while I had downed my entire site with something I had done... >:-(

I meant to sit down and rewrite the particular parts to make it sufficiently work for my specific needs. And, I seem to have achieved it a couple nights ago.

So here I am.

Now I don't seem to have the right moment to prompt me to moblog. But, at least now I have the means. &#59;D

This will be an attempt to consolidate the little thoughts that come to me while away from my computer.
