Travelin' moose

Off to San Diego tomorrow (or I guess that would be today, at this point) for a long weekend with the in-laws, coming back Sunday afternoon. We try to get down there twice a year, over Christmas and once during the summer, but because of various family reunions (and, in 2004, a plethora of weddings, including ours) it's been a few years since we've actually made the summer trip. It'll be nice to get down there and away for a few days, although somehow we got all booked up this trip so there won't be as much sitting around on the farm as usual. Most of the planned activities should at least be fun.

My 'Net access will be limited at best -- might get to check mail once or twice a day, probably very little LJ, certainly no IM -- so I'll basically be out of contact until my return. It's always so weird, being away from the Internet for an extended time. It's like a voice in my ear has been stilled.

Have a great weekend, everyone. See you in s few days (if I don't have time to poke in in the morning). And now: bed.

“Hello everyone, this has been an exciting morning so far. Got to the airport a little more than an hour before our flight. We were prepared to check our bags thanks to a tip off from a friend about the whole "no liquids on board" thing, I don't know if you've all heard about that, it's an exciting new security measure - no shampoo, no toothpaste, no anything liquid at all on the plane. So, we were all set to check our bags and then we get to the airport and see the hour-long line to check our bags about an hour before our flight. So we thought about, the security lines are not actually bad, much shorter than I would have expected, it's all the baggage check-in. So I just rounded up all of our toiletries and stuff walked them back to the car and left them in the trunk. So I guess we'll have a little trip to the drugstore when we get to San Diego. Which will be fine. *laugh* It's not a big deal, it's probably faster than waiting in that line. So. This is, uh, shaping up to be an interesting day of air travel. And I will let you all know how it goes. Hope you are having a good day. Talk to you later. Bye.”
