10+ YEARS


Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

The Dark Side of Business Travel

The current gig I'm on is quite fun, mainly because I'm doing it with a bunch of co-workers and we get to write code all day. The downside of it is we have to fly out to the client site every other week. The traveling isn't too bad because we're all good friends, and traveling with good friends is quite a bit of fun. Today, the "fun" part of it is getting stretched.

We're flying back to DC this week, and Jim picked me up from my house at 11:30 this morning. We headed to DIA for a 1:30pm flight. When we arrived, we discovered our flight wasn't leaving until 4:30pm.

At 4:30, United cancelled the flight.

We're still at DIA, scheduled to leave on an 11:40pm flight for Orlando. We get into Orlando at 5:00am, then jump on a flight to DC, arriving at 8:00am. Ugh.

Should be an interesting day tomorrow. Our current plan is to grab a few hours of sleep when we get there and show up at the client shortly after noon. As for the Wednesday night Tech Meetup, we're still planning on Brickskeller, but are open to other suggestions.

It could be worse Matt. You could be stuck in DC or Orlando trying to make your way home and having flights cancelled on you. At least this way you shouldn't be missing any days with familiy :) Always look on the bright, side of life....

Hey Matt, Was in DC for the 4th of July weekend for a wedding... if you are out and about you should go to the terrace of the Hotel Washington for dinner and a few drinks. It may be a bit touristy but the view is worth it.

[Trackback] I’m currently stranded at Schiphol airport, Amsterdam, after my flight has been delayed by 4 hours and 20 minutes (hoping it doesn’t get any worse than that), so I figured I could kill time taking pictures and uploading them to Flickr. Than...
