Lifetime Worst Air Travel Day


Everybody need a 'worst' of every activity we do. We need something to compare future activities against. So, I guess I am pleased to have set a new worst air travel day for me. All future travels MUST be better than this one. This was the convergence of three storms: bad weather, mechanical trouble (prior day) and a busy holiday (Spring Break). And as much as all of us like to TELL everyone of bad travels or bad traffic, nobody really wants to hear the whole story. So I tried to graphically show what the day was like. Much less painful to see than pages of text.

Looks good so far, can't see why you would need any more in the way of formal training. Good mix, level on the eyes.

The Kansas City airport ranks very high on my worst-airports-ever list. Your sketches tell great stories.

Another great journal entry John. This is the exact reason I will only fly when necessary - now that DH and I are both retired, we have the time to drive most places. I HATE to fly these days, and you've captured my reason why very well.

Love the clock as a means to shorthand a long story. What a trip! I haven't been on a plane in years and don't really want to get on one at all the way they are now.

It will be a lot better to look back on this in a year or so!
