After a month or so of not travelling, it’s back on the “road” again. Thanks to my trip to Taipei last year, I get the shorter TSA lines and can sit near the front of the plane. I’m not sure I like the front any better than the far back. Either gets you off the plane fairly quickly.
I had a window seat, but the weather was bleak most of the way. Rather than taking a bunch of pictures, I read a book.
The trip to Sacramento was uneventful. Well, maybe not quite. I did sit by Tim, who works √2 cubes from me, and learn what he does. And I was able to identify Mt. Thielsen, the unknown peak from last week’s post.
It is time to visit my team in Folsom and thus time to post more pictures from the flight from PDX to SMF. Once again, I got seat 3E. It’s a good seat; I like it. :-)
Although the Bombardier Dash 8 is a slower plane it also flies lower than the jets Horizon used to flight on this route. The views it offers are much better than those from 37,000 feet.
My rental car is a Nissan Cube. It’s fun to drive, though a lot cooler than I am. I had to untuck my shirt and crank Jack FM to fit in.
Another flight sitting in 3E from PDX to SMF, some more clouds, another engine shot. Hey look, a river winding through fields. :-)
