I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Flying to Washington DC

Was feeling a little frantic Monday morning when I woke up 30 minutes before Berta would pick up and take me to the shuttle to the Phoenix airport. But of course, we made it on time.

04 Phoenix airport AZ (1024x768)

Decided to check both my pieces of luggage so I wouldn’t have to deal with anything while touring in Frankfurt Tuesday.

Went through security twice as I accidentally walked back out of the boarding area. It went very smoothly.

There’s actually an outdoors smoking area on the gate side of security. Sweet!

07 Flying out of Phoenix AZ (768x1024)

The skies were clear over Phoenix.

15 Flight 952 to DC (1024x768)

But further east the clouds settled in to create a wavy blanket. Experienced a few bumps during the four hour flight.

16 Flight 952 to DC (1024x768)

Opened up a little when landing in DC. And most unbelievable, this airport offers several special smoking rooms, thick enough to cut with a knife.

Now sitting in Frankfurt waiting for, something. The plane is broken and of course only business class gets rebooked immediately. Was suppose to leave 1.5 hours ago. No free WIFI so need to decide whether to pay Germany’s T-Mobile 8 Euro for 60 minutes. Hmmmm.

I’m very tired and getting hungry enough to eat a flight attendant.

I hope you had some salt cuase some flight attendants tend to be a bit on the fresh side. LOL.

Forgive me for saying so Firefly, but that sounds like typical SA humour - clever and funny!

Yikes, I didn't know we had cannibals in Arizona. Do not eat the flight attendants, Gaelyn. ;-)

Flight attendants don't have enough protien to satisfy your hunger... better have some pretzels and beer on top.

I became quite familiar with the airport in Frankfort the one time I flew thru there--it was the day before Christmas Eve, 1971. My son was almost 6 weeks old, and we were going home to Atlanta. The flight was delayed 8 hours!!!

What have I told you about smoking, missy???

I enjoy reading about your adventure. I take it you are a smoker! If so, you'd feel at home in Belgrade, though enforcement is on its way to save us non-smokers.

I hope all the flight attendants escaped unscathed.
