Second Star to the right, Straight On ’til Morning

Filed under: travel, Wanderings — Brian Lutz @ 6:29 am

If you are reading this, then it means that I managed to make it through two weeks of eating out of food trucks without somehow ending up dead, which is usually considered a good thing. Once again, I am blogging from an airplane, and getting some really cool views of Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helens as we fly by. Conveniently ignoring for a minute or two the fact that I was up at 4am this morning to catch the flight , and the fact that I will probably be averaging about that much sleep most days this week, I am actually doing reasonably well right now. It sure seems like I have been blogging from airplanes a lot lately, but at the same time I don’t really consider myself much of a frequent flyer. As usual, I am off to Disneyland, but this one is the big Summer trip me and my friends have been planning for months.

We already had a little bit of drama with a forgotten bag this morning (thankfully resolved without too much catastrophe involved,) and the airport was pretty ridiculously crowded for 5am on a Tuesday, but as far as I know we both made it onto our flights just fine (thanks to the vagaries of airline pricing we had to book separate flights to avoid having to pay a bunch more money,) and six days of warm California sunshine await us. Aside from the fact that the weather in Seattle isn’t supposed to be all that much different during the coming week, that’s presumably supposed to be a good thing.

I suspect my Internet access will be limited for the next few days, and I suspect I will be spending most of that time either too busy or too zonked to do much writing, so I will probably be saving most of this for when I get back. As I have observed on several occasions, I don’t think it’s possible for any trip that involves more than a day or so at Disneyland to be a relaxing getaway, and with five days on the schedule I doubt this one will be any exception. Add to that the fraction that this is my first attempt at a peak season trip (at least I am getting in a week before the Annual Pass blackouts lift and the real madhouse begins) and we could be looks at an interesting time here. Even so, it should be fun, and I couldn’t ask for better company than I will have on this trip. As usual, we have plenty of ideas for goofy ride photos (Note: Goofy ride photos probably won’t contain actual Goofy, I haven’t quite figured out how to pull those strings just yet) and the usual shenanigans should be in effect.

I have been looking forward to this trip for months now, and can’t wait to enjoy it. If I manage to survive it, it’ll be even better..
