Of course Murphy's Law had to come into play here. I'm 678 miles from home. The closest I've been in 3 weeks and - yup you guessed it - the incoming flight was badly delayed so my outgoing flight was delayed. I was tired and looking forward to getting home, so the extreme security checks rather tried my patience. Having already had my ENTIRE bag searched twice in China before I flew out, my demo bag was searched again while transferring from the incoming China flight to the outgoing Seattle flight. I swear, the woman used about 15 of those explosive wipes on my demo bag.

Kept to Plan? : Having exhausted most of my battery powered devices and read my book, I spent this journey either snoozing or staring out of the window. There are a lot of impressive mountains between San Francisco and Seattle with Mt Rainier being the king of them all! And I'm talking single mountain peaks here, not amorphous ranges.
