Adventures in Airports: Part 1 – Minneapolis to Chicago

Apparently Air Tran no longer operates out of the main terminal here. I didn’t know that, though, so I parked over there and then had to wind my way through the terminal, take a tram ride, take a light-rail ride, cross an entire parking structure, go up to the ticketing floor in the new terminal, and go back down to the terminal level. This took me 40 minutes. At this point I’m thanking my lucky stars that I was born with a personality type that likes to leave extra time for things. If I were either of my brothers or my dad I would have missed my flight by now.

Oh, and just in case you wanted to know, the sever weather shelters here are in the women’s bathroom. Now I’m praying for no sever weather.

I’m also wishing that this airport didn’t make me pay for wireless access. All my posts will have to be put up later.

Other random wishes: I wish I had an iPod or other MP3 player, I wish I didn’t have more reading to do for Immersion so I could sink my teeth into the brainless thriller I brought along (The Bourn Supremacy… Bwa-ha-ha-ha).
