Had an awesome time in California (a bit more on that in good time), and am back now after our red-eye. Sort of want to go to sleep, but the maids are coming soon. Of course, since it involved a) travel and b) us, there were hassles. On the way out we had equipment arrival issues, departure delays, and ground holds. Oh, and we had to park in the JFK overflow lot, which adds another 15 minutes of joy on top of the normal long-term parking hassle. On the way back, our equipment was late out of JFK, so we didn’t leave until about midnight; encountered gate availability delays on arrival, and then they had equipment issues with getting the bags off the plane, so that held us up even more. But, we got home at about 10:30 AM, so it works out.
