When Flying Internationally...

Image
Remember to leave early.  For instance, 4am.
















The less pleasant the weather, the better.  Here we could have done better with an actual snowstorm, or say, hail, or ducks flying into the side of the plane while still on the tarmac.









The worse the weather, the more of an adventure, for you and the pilot.  For instance, you don't even know if you're on the right runway if your visibility is a maximum of only 3 feet in front of you.









Sincerely, its better when the weather isn't great, because the clouds are amazing.











Its nice when things clear up, too.












But then you start to ask "are we in the right place?  Isn't this supposed to involve water... and islands?"















"And sleep?"












Remember, even if there's a sequence, it may not be "in order," or even "in English."  In this case it was in English, but there were two lines and the numeric sequences were seemingly randomly picked.














The beef or vegetarian options are usually better than the chicken.












Do no…

Seattle.

Cori and I met up with her friends Ian and Jodi out in Seattle, journeyed down to Portland and Newport, OR, and then headed back north. Beautiful Skies, amazing food and beer, and great atmospheres.

Here are some highlights: Who's the guy with a watch and a wristband on the Underground Tour?  THIS GUY.


These are pipes.  Please note that they are next to what is referred to as a "wall."


because the last guy didn't and ended up putting a big hole in the wall, which you are now walking through.


Dude, not funny.  I needed those. 


Mmmm, fuzzy trees.
AAAAAAH!  NOT FUZZY TREE.  Oh.. whew. wife. Awwww.


PROGRESS.


Its hard to see but there are DUCKS wearing RAIN COATS.  


Hey foot, get out of the way of my awesome cracked concrete shot.


FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!  I'M WARNING YOU!


Mission... failed.


That's... uh... a little ... I don't know... vague?


as Ian realized we were trapped in hyperspace, he thought to himself "is EVERYONE blurry in hyperspace?"
