36 hours from now I'll be on my way. Total distance for the flight there is 9,552 miles and the total duration including connections is 22hr 9mn. That's a long haul. I'll be traveling from Charleston to Detroit, Detroit to Tokyo and Tokyo to Bangkok.

I've packed, unpacked and repacked a hundred times in the past few days. My pack ended up being heavier than I wanted but I'm not taking much so there isn't much I can eliminate. I'm going to try my hardest to get my pack on the plan with me. It's about 4 linear inches too big but I doubt they'll object.

I spent tonight listening to Thai phrases and made myself a cheat sheet of the phrases I thought were most important:

How much is this?
I'm sorry
Thank you
Can you lower the price?
My name is...
Use the meter
Can I see the room?

I know it doesn't seem like much but it's all I could muster. Thai is a really difficult language. I'll be happy if I can say hello correctly. From everything I've read, any attempt to speak Thai is greeted warmly by the locals.
