March 13, 2014 (Oklahoma City) - There are advantages to getting to the airport early. Advantage #1: Easy Check in. No line up when I got here just after 7:00 am. Two friendly agents to greet and guide me. Ticket agent very interested in what we were doing (she goes to Costa Rica to do mission work). She didn't charge me to load up the my two bags...one a huge suitcase full of cataract surgical supplies. No line up at security and TSA√ made it a breeze. TSA Agent: "Do you travel a lot?" PLH: "Well sort of...I guess I do". Agent: "I've never seen a Canadian with TSA√!" PLH: "Now you have." 😊 Advantage #2: finishing up all the email tasks left over from yesterday. Advantage #3: Recharging everything possible! More soon.
