Start a trip

July 10, 2007 0 Comments A+ a-

I've been packing for my trip, which starts tomorrow. I "commute" from here (Washington, DC) to my base in Chicago. I have to be there by 4 pm, and the first flight of my trip leaves at 5:15 pm. Three quick legs and we end up in Richmond, VA for the overnight (layover.)

I usually like flying early morning trips, rather than ones that start late. Late flights get delayed by weather and traffic build up. Working the "kick-off" flights at oh-dark-thirty gets my day done very early. Those kick-off flights cause me to have to set my alarm clock for 3:45 in the morning sometimes!
