travel panic
posted by soe 1:36 am

You may have noticed I am not a good traveler. I’m a great visitor. I love being other places and seeing new sights and meeting new and old friends. But I’m terrible at the traveling part, probably because it relies on things I’m not especially good at — timeliness and organization.

I leave for Portland for Sock Summit in 25 hours. Yup, that’s right. I will have to walk out the door to catch a cab to Union Station at approximately 3:15 Wednesday morning. (Please let Amtrak be running on time for that train…) Who was it who thought a 6:15 a.m. flight from BWI was a good idea again?

Oh, right…

Just in case I don’t get a chance to post tomorrow during my pre-travel frenzy, I will have a laptop with me in Portland and will be sharing the fun of the conference and my Northwest visit as I go along. I have a new camera card, so posts might even include pictures.

But, in the meantime, if you imagine a rather frazzled knitter frantically throwing around balls of yarn (the class that requires five yarns would have to start before the Marketplace opens!), every dpn she’s ever owned, books, and her bathing suit while muttering under her breath about C-Tran buses to Vancouver, the Fareless Square, and Saturday market while repeatedly removing cats from a carry-on, you probably wouldn’t be far off the mark.
