On the road again: Bay area, day 3

I'm on a plane now and will shortly have to shut down.  From the moment we land, I'll be rushing so I can catch as much as possible of the opening act for Josh Ritter--and then, of course, Ritter himself.  I'm quite looking forward to the show and will write about it tomorrow.

Today was another of those travel days with a six-something wake-up, so I didn't start the day very happy.  That said, the first leg of our travel went well.  When we landed in DFW, we had only 40 minutes to make our connection.  That time evaporated as people filed slowly off the plane, so by the time we hit the terminal, we were down to 25 minutes.  Fortunately for us, the connecting flight was rather late, so late that we had time to eat delicious Red Mango parfaits, do some work in the Admiral's Club, stroll to the new, very close gate, and then wait some more.

Even better, at the gate I learned that American had upgraded me, so the flight home was pleasant and, thanks to the on-plane bandwidth, quite productive.

All in all, it's hard to complain about travel that works out this way, even with the rough start.

Now, I must shut down.  Soon, Josh Ritter live!

Sorry I missed, you, Mark. Sounds like a quick and busy trip.

Yeah, it was a quick one, and I was booked basically every hour of the day. Sorry I missed you.
