I'm heading off in a few hours as well... in fact, going up north from Seattle into Surrey, BC later today to pick up Aoshi and Miaka No Baka, who went up a week ahead to visit family.

I'm stoked, of course... (Ask me again in a few hours after:
- The commute to the airport.
- The first security check.
- The waiting at the gate for the plane.
- The flight, the mad dash from baggage to car rental.
- Clearing Canadian customs going up.
-- ...and U.S. customs coming back down.

And, then, the mad scramble to Thur. night pre-reg badge pickup, and possibly hooking up with some others, and then collapse into some type of room for a few more hours... :cool:

Yes, as of this moment, I have touched down in Seattle, and am on my way to get my rental car, but oh, what a journey...

First... I made it to the Oakland, CA international airport an hour ahead of schedule...

Then... Our flight was delayed on leaving the gate...
Then... delayed some more...
Then... We heard there was a computer problem with a part of the aircraft, they sent a couple maintenance people in...
Then... We waited some more...
Then... People who had connecting flights were offered the option to get off the plan and make alternate arrangements...
Then... After about an hour and a half after we were supposed to leave, we all had to deplane and rebook on next flights out...

I ended up leaving California about 3 hours later than I intended.. However, the flight was without incident, and I was greatly relieved to have made it here in one piece, rather than in pieces... :D

So, it's cold, rainy, snowy in some places... Miaka and Aoshi are coming down from Vancouver via Greyhond, which means I don't get to go up to the Great White North... (bummer... :sulk: )

We should make it to pre-reg material pick up tonight... We'll be out in full force tomorrow! Yatta!
