I knew I was asking for trouble booking a flight out of BWI to go to Orlando so early in the morning, but flights to Orlando were cheaper at BWI vice Reagan National or Dulles.  It did not help that I spent most of Thursday evening watching CSI instead of packing.  At the end of the evening, I was tired, so I decided to take a short "nap" before packing.  After hitting the snooze button countless times, now I am frantically trying to pack my bags and hit the road to the airport.  I did not leave until 5 o'clock for a flight at 7...barring traffic it takes around one hour to get to BWI airport.

After breaking numerous speed limits, I did arrive at BWI just before 6.  Not wanting to take any chances, I parked at their Express lot, so any savings I would have had flying out of BWI was erased by the fact I am paying a premium ($16) to have the convenience of regular shuttle service between the parking lot and terminal.  I managed to check in my bags before the one hour dealine.  AirTran charges $15 for any checked bags and they were going to assess an additional penalty becasue my golf travel bag exceeded their weight limit.  I quickly remedied that problem by unstrapping the garment bag which is incorporated into the traveling golf bag.  By the time I went through security, I arrived in time to board the plane.  So off I go to Orlando...hopefully for some sun and fun.
