A non stop trip to Dallas. That sounds easy enough.
Fly on Friday
Wedding on Saturday
Sunday,time to worship and dinner with friends
Monday, open for something fun
Alaska airlines to Dallas, leaving Seattle at 1:00 in the afternoon
with the time change, dinner in Dallas.
Just as we were approaching DFW, the announcement came
We will be circling Dallas. When the weather permits, we will land.
( we did not know that would be tomorrow )
After an hour of "waiting" we were told
We have been redirected to Austin, we should be there in about 45 minutes.
Arrived in Austin.
Our crew had been on duty since early in the morning, from Anchorage, so they could not fly any more today
No Alaska crew in Austin
Flight to continue in the morning at 8;30
( wedding at 10:00, that would not work )
Decision to rent a car.
Both passengers next to Darrell were eager to get to Dallas
so the four of us headed out.
The driver was from Dallas. It was dark and many semi's travelling the highway.
The speed limit is 80 ( yes eighty ) Our driver seemed confidant at 90, 92 ( yes, ninety / ninety two )
Darrell was in the front seat praying we did not get spotted by the police
I was in the back seat praying we would not get in an accident.
Arrived in Dallas
We are not in the airport yet. We need to pay a toll to get into the airport and parking lot system.
This is a huge,huge airport.
Dropped off driver at his car.
Dropped off second passenger
Dropped off rental car
Picked up our rental car
Drove to our hotel
3:15 good night.
Good morning...beautiful day for a wedding .
