I completely understand how you feel bc I’m having similar feelings about flying to Miami this Thanksgiving. Thx to everyone with info bc I needed it too! (((HUGS)))
To answer your questions I’ve flown 2x before but it’s been 15yrs and pre 9/11. No I’m not scared of terrorists, or dying. I’m scared of the airport losing and damaging my scooter, the only legs I have. Losing my luggage and being nekkid for a week bc there’s no Wally World on the boat! We’re going to the Bahamas and lawd if we ever get there it won’t be soon enough! Once I flew to Denver and odd as this may sound, I loved that airport! You have to understand, where I live, our airport might have 3-4 planes maybe 5 at the same time. It can be called “international” only bc Delta has a hub there. So to see that many planes in and out of Denver was amazing! Sure I’d been to NOLA, Dallas and Atlanta seeing various people fly out. We flew out of Atlanta but DENVER? Man that was so smooth! No worries like I have this time. Too much chaos makes me feel like something is wrong. My family calls it me hitting the panic button. I’m not “hitting” it, I’m beating it like a redheaded stepchild!
We’re having trouble finding a flight home so I have no idea what airline we’re flying on. I tried to solve the problem by myself Memorial Day 2018. On Memorial Day 2019, I was mega frustrated that we had missed our anniversary and were about to miss our 1/2 year mark, which we did. We still don’t have plane tix! Our anniv is why we’re going on the cruise. It’s Jan 10, 04 yeah 15yrs and counting! T
Not being able to come back doesn’t seem to be an actual PROBLEM to me, but my husband who has to go to work, will say otherwise. We have a running joke about going home via FedEx bc it’s got to be cheaper and a whole lot less complicated than trying to get a flight! One way or the other we’ll get there by 10:30 the next morning!
FREE ADVICE : If you go up Pikes Peak, which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND for you to do, even if it’s the hottest day of the year and making record breaking heat, TAKE A JACKET bc it’s cold up there! Not freezing like you need a wool coat or something but you will need something more than a flimsy Tshirt on. Unless you’re from AK (in Southern that’s “I’ll ask her”), Iceland, Greenland, Upper North Canada, Santy Clawz or an Eskimo, I wouldn’t wear shorts!
