Hi everyone,

     I have decided to work til the very last minute prior to my departure to Montana. My flight had to make a transfer at Salt Lake City prior to arrival at Kalispell, Montana. I arrived at SLC slightly disoriented due to time change. I was resting at the airport terminal, recharging all my electronic devices and messing around on my smart phone, just when I looked at my watch, oh 9pm still got some time before the flight leaves. Wait, is this mountain time?  Yes and it is 1 hour ahead of Pacific day light time, I grabbed all my belonings and ran for the terminal, my flight is supposed to depart at 1005 pm however the plane left the gate PRIOR to that.  So I watched hopelessly as the plane took off. I walked to the ticket counter and the ticket agents were laughing and joking amongst themselves when they turned to me and started helping me rebook my flight. Unfortunately the next flight is not until tomorrow morning at 945 am. I was quite frustrated because my hike tomorrow starts tomorrow at 830 am so I would totally miss my hiking group. Anyways, I took the flight for 945 am because there were no flights that would get in any earlier and sat down started to rearrange my trip. I first called the motel and cancelled the reservation and then called the tour company, but it was after hours, so I left a long message for them. I also went on line and found several alternative hikes that would leave on the following day.  The Delta agent was kind enough to first offer me a coupon for discounted hotel room so I don't have to spend the night in the terminal, later the agent walked over to me with a room at Comfort suite complimentary under the name of Hosiwitz? I was so grateful for the Delta agent's kind offer and took off to the shuttle area for my hotel room. This is very interesting, 2 wrong makes one right?  Anyway I am not working, I am just enjoying every minute off. I figured something will straighten out one way or another. A free night at the hotel room IS a GREAT way to start things off :)
