American Airlines Regional Jet to Kansas City (courtesy AA)

My friends in Austin thought I was totally crazy to take off for a three day weekend trip to Kansas City to meet up with a group of people I had never met in person.  First of all, it was Kansas City (most of them still think it's in Kansas, and just a small cow town totally lacking in culture).  Secondly, I knew no one in the group.  Thirdly, it was a great weekend to hit the lake in Austin!  Lastly, I was not in the best of shape that morning -- partied a bit the night before, not a lot of sleep, etc.  Maybe I am a bit crazy -- but travel is my passion and I love to meet new people.  I was really looking forward to meeting some folks I had been trading messages with recently, particularly Erin (Poohstanggt), Shawn (Geerbox) and Eric (Yecoh).

I got up early, packed my bag and was off to the airport to catch my 9am flight.  I flew on American Airlines' regional jet service -- a smaller plane that flew first to Dallas Love Field and then on to KC, MO.  I slept most of the way up there, which helped tremendously on the lack of sleep from the prior night.  I got to KC right at noon.

how funny! my best friend was so worried about me going by myself to my first TB meet. She told me they might be killers or something! but she's a very paranoid person and she swears if she goes anywhere that she would be a target to be killed. That's her only fault. I swear to it. other then that flaw, she's normal.
