I’m headed to Denver today, to depart from DIA tomorrow. For Detroit. Then Amsterdam. Then Tanzania.
It’s times like these that I’m really glad I don’t have trouble flying. I’ve flown for 18 hours (going to New Zealand) straight and it was great. I read. I write. I think. I try to meet people sitting around me, but they usually look at me sideways and resist engagement. Then I do some Sudoku.
I’ve got fresh podcasts loaded on my iPod. A few new books are on my Kindle (not to mention a paperback Tom Robbins for the climb) and I’m looking forward to some quality time in a pressure controlled tube, hurtling through space at 33,000 feet.
Maybe I’ll learn from Swarner’s example and take a zip-loc baggie of shooters aboard.
By 7pm Tanzania time, I’ll be arriving in Africa.
Bring it on!
P.S. From here on out, my original updates will be a bit random. I’m not sure how much internet access I’ll have or when I might have it. I’ve prewritten and scheduled a few posts to keep come content flowing on the blog. I apologize if it gets stale, but, you know…I’ll be in Africa. Cheers!
