…this sounds like fun to you. I can’t really say that it started with our flight north. But that’s when the setnetter test started. Two important things I haven't noted below: 1) I think we'll have good internet access this season!!! and 2) this is a long post but I guarantee, the day was even longer. 2:00 am: packing up Karma’s truck with 200 lbs of frozen food for our luggage (plus about 40 lbs in my hand-carry) and 2 dogs (Ollie – little white dog, and Annie – medium sized black dog), plus a few extra pairs of underwear. 3:18 am: the world doesn't have many friends like Karma – she got up to take us to the airport. 9:25 am: the massage chairs in Anchorage – bliss (even though it did take some liberties that I don’t remember giving permission for). I wanted to go for another 15 minute round but Jean noticed that our flight would leave before it was over. Whoops! Crew members: get a photo of those chairs right outside the Pen Air gate. The blog needs to see! I was thinking that if we get to 200,000 lbs, I’ll buy one for fish camp. Yee haw! David, will the new solar installation run it? 9:40 am: race to the gate. When I asked the gate agent if she spends her lunch hour in the chair, she pointed out the cost. Oh. That. 9:45 am: exiting the terminal to the plane, we noticed the sign on the door. It said, “Emergency exit only: keep pushing! An alarm will sound.” Hmmm. We stopped to get a photo of it and my phone rang. That would probably be the last call that phone will see for 2 months. It said CARD SERVICES. So, the massage chair triggered a call from my credit card company. I talked to the lady about the massage chair… and the rest of the passengers were waiting for us to board the flight.
