About 4 hours from now I will hit the road to go to a 6:00 AM flight from ORD > SEA. Naturally I can’t even consider sleeping because the squirrels are running a rampage now.
It has been entirely too long since I was kept awake with anticipation. Travel does that to me though. This may end up being one of the longest days of my life but it is in the spirit of adventure so I will make due. As long as I stay awake long enough to get to the terminal and shuffle my way on board, I can at rest easy, even if metaphorically.
Thankfully I have a co-pilot on the drive up and a travel companion in a long time friend who was able to take the whole week off and go with me. What’s more, he is going to be able to visit family in the area that he hasn’t been able to see for a few years. It’s always nice to have the opportunity to catch up with family while on an adventure.
I’ve all but given up on the idea that I will sleep tonight. I will just bide my time.
Bag is packed, thumbs are sufficiently twiddled, time to go!
