Chris here,
We had an uneventful trip from Portland to Logan airport aboard the Concord coach lines.

After clearing security, we immediately sought out the comforts of the exclusive United Club, compliments of the American Express Platinum card. And this is where things all went wrong.
Celine purchased the Am Ex only for this perk, so she was mildly distressed when the receptionist informed us that we were not worthy or welcome to lounge at the United Club. This held enormous potential for a showdown, Klampits from Maine vs. snooty lady guarding the treasures of the club. Instead, we collectively slunk away, chagrinned but still not unenthusiastic for what might come next.

Turns out Paula Abdul was on the same flight to LAX, this helped everyone forget about snooty club lady. Please see posts from Celine and Lilly for two different versions of this encounter.

The 6.5 hour flight was a good warm up for tonight's trans global epic 13 hour adventure. Thomas and I met a very friendly fellow named Jerry from Sidney, please see Thomas' post for one version of the conversation.

It is now 2 hours since everyone woke up, local time now is almost 5:30 am. Welcome to the West coast you East coast morning people. That's ok because they start serving coffee in only 90 minutes from now, wahoo!

Sounds like a glitch well handled. Still so exciting . Love this way to stay in touch. Are there still post cards?
