weekend adventure

Road trip anyone!?  

This past weekend we went home for 3 days - not exactly a road trip, but it involved a few flights and a rental car. Just another chapter in our adventures. 

It was a Planes, Trains, and Automobiles kinda trip, just trying to get home for the weekend. 

We were running through airports (like O.J. back in those old commercials) trying to make connecting flights. 

We were standing in line at the rental car desk at midnight along with 50 other folks (like a Seinfeld routine).

Agent: I'm sorry, we have no mid-size available at the moment.
Jerry: I don't understand, I made a reservation, do you have my reservation?
Agent: Yes, we do, unfortunately we ran out of cars.
Jerry: But the reservation keeps the car here. That's why you have the
Agent: I know why we have reservations.
Jerry: I don't think you do. If you did, I'd have a car. See, you know how to
take the reservation, you just don't know how to hold the reservation and
that's really the most important part of the reservation, the holding. Anybody
can just take them.

But we made it home, reconnected with everyone, lots of good food and good company and good hugs. Wish we could stay. Looking forward to more of the same at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Well more of the good family stuff, not so much the adventure part.

family stuff, yes. Adventures in traveling? Only makes a good story later when commiserating with other travelers. Let's hope the next trip is far less dramatic!
