The vacation begins

It's been a while, but I figured it would be good to make a few blog entries during this vacation. With that in mind, here's the first.

The trip has gotten off to a good start. You know things are going well when you're waiting in line with Pauly Shore. At least for a while. His B-list celebrity status still managed to get him through security without waiting in that line. Oh well. It gave us something to talk about while us normal folk waited there for an hour.

But now we're on the flight. In fact we'll be landing in less than two hours, which means we've been on the plane for more than ten hours. I have to say, it hasn't been bad at all for coach. Plenty of legroom and when we checked in, I talked the desk agent into moving 62B to another seat (we booked 62A and 62C hoping for this scenario). Having the whole row makes quite a difference. 1 movie, 1 mediocre dinner, 1 Ambien, 1 breakfast, and we're pretty much there. I think I slept for about 6 or 7 hours. That's a record for me.


  1. Smart move with the seating arrangement! 6 or 7 hours?........if I could sleep like that on a plane it would be a miracle! I hope you're having a great time and taking lots of pictures. Why don't you send us some?

  2. I've been anxiously awaiting your NZ blog posts, but I have yet to see any. I heard you guys had a lot of fun. I'm jealous!
