Flying to 27th Annual Narcolepsy Network Conference...maybe

Well, I was hoping to get in with time to get some supper and a good night's rest before the conference.

But, seems everything is going wrong today.

The wake up and get ready for ride to airport wasn't too bad....in fact I was ready to go before 9am, though I had delayed the scheduled pick up to 9:30am...because they estimated time is a lot shorter than I'm used to, and they hit it quite well when I rode on October 2nd.

Finally about 9:20, I went out...remembering that they're more than punctual on pickup, they are there a bit before hand. And, sure enough a Black Car was waiting already.

But, it took a little longer than estimated to get to the airport, though still reasonable. The delay was due to different K-18 construction blocking the entrance to the airport, requiring a detour to get there.

Checking my bag and getting my boarding passes wasn't too bad, though going through security was a different. When I first started flying with CPAP, it was take it out for them to x-ray and swab. Then a couple years ago, they didn't care anymore. And, I didn't need to take it out. But, now they want it out and checked again.

Though no problems with Xyrem. That first time through.

After getting settled to wait for boarding, the PA came on to say that our plane got diverted to Tulsa, OK due to high winds...an advisory which is in affect until 7pm, i found out later. They don't know when the plane will make it in, so everybody needs to leave the security area, and check on their connections, etc.

After a lot of standing, I find that my DFW to CLE flight has been rebooked to 7:45pm...arriving 11:15pm in CLE....so I'll be lucky if I hit the hotel by midnight, etc. Guess I'm going to sleep in on Friday morning and for go the Rock & Roll Hall Fame tour....

Guess second time through security should go smoother :)

And, I guess I can get use of the Admiral's Club to pass the time in DFW.

Darn....now they've officially cancelled my flight to DFW. Well, the agent said he would hold me a spot on the next flight, so hopefully he'll make that happen.

So maybe no Admiral's Club now....but still hopefully make it into Cleveland tonight.
