Ugly Day of Travel…Minnesota Trip #1 to Visit Dad, Day 1

Posted: April 26, 2018 in AVC Men's Basketball

One Ugly day of travel!  

I learned something in the last couple of trips we have taken that included flying out of LAX airport...add an hour on to your travel time to the airport.  The 405 freeway to the airport and the airport itself are a disaster and getting worse.  Just made it in time in four hours from our home Palmdale.  Gonna make it 5 hours from now on.

The lines did not only happen going to and around the airport.  We were #15 in line to take off on the runway.  Added 45 minutes to our trip to Minnesota.  Added another 15 minutes do three circles around the MSP airport.  Why??? Who the heck knows.    Let then add nearly an hour wait after landing for our luggage to start coming down.  So full two hours of delay.

I am 5’10”, 190…average sized American man.  The coach seats in Sun Country Airlines were so small and uncomfortable the even a guy my size had numb spots all over.  Really felt sorry for the many people on the plane who are not average in size who really did not fit in one seat and had to walk side ways to move in the plane.   Guy next to me in the middle seat was about 5’7″, 250+, took up some of my aisle seat and the window seat as well.  Nice guy but he sweated a lot and we all got kinda wet.

In Minnesota safe, numb and in need of a shower.  Will sleep well tonight.
