Today did not need to be so long, but I was trying to get cheap tickets and combine that with frequently flier miles, so it turned out to involve a lot of different stops in many different places. It began at 6am when we drove to SFO. I said good-bye to Paul, then went through the process to board my flight to Chicago. The premier line was very short, which was surprising for the Saturday before Thanksgiving. The flight to ORD was fine. I had a long layover in Chicago, so I used the time to do some email, then took a long walk around many of the different terminals, just to burn off some energy. My backpack was growing heavy, and the computer was still warm, so maybe it wasn't the best decision.
Anyway, the flight to Amsterdam left on time. I had dinner and slept.
