Arrived back from LA yesterday on Sun Country. Flight was fine, but the airport experience was not pleasant. In addition to very long lines, I got the dreaded “SSSS” designation on my ticket (extra special screening). I’m sure it was because I was traveling alone on a one-way ticket, but don’t you think the system could be a little more intelligent?
The week finished up OK, although there are still a ton of things that need to be completed out there before school starts. I’ll likely return in mid-August for a few days to complete the roll-out. The wiring and construction contractors should be finished by then and I’ll have more practice with imaging machines here that can be replicated out there.
On Sunday I drove straight east from my hotel to Buena Park and Knott’s Berry Farm. The classic chicken dinner at Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant is worth the always-constant one hour wait in line.
The rest of the day didn’t go great–I dropped my doggie bag in the dirt and the crappy internet access in the hotel was broken all day. The wireless provider for the hotel, “Zoxzones,” was pathetic. Not only did they charge for the service, I had to call every single day to have them reset the access point so I could login. Never again.Originally published by DK on July 24, 2007 at 10:02 am
