DFW, best thing I can say is in at Gate C31 and out of Gate C21 some 45 minutes later - easy and sweet. While I was surrounded by the "OUT LOUD" Family in row 30 something, the 3 hour flight was easy and uneventful.
Unfortunately, I must have picked the wrong day to relapse on crack when I booked my ticket, because my friends were going to come through Reno in the afternoon and pick me up on the way to Tahoe, in the evening.
Well, got to Tahoe at 10:30am local time, which was about 4 hours early. Luckily, ever good resort airport has shuttles, so it took me about 5 minutes to find another half dozen folks with yoga mats sticking out of their bags and we all got on the North Lake Tahoe Shuttle.
Not a bad deal, airport to 'door' of the festival service, in about an hour, so definitely booked a round-trip, since I'll have to be back on Sunday before I'd ask anyone to leave to give me a ride.
Once at the festival grounds, I just headed for the Off the Mat Into the World booth, where I'll be hanging for the festival assisting - there I could drop my bags, meet up with friends and then get a recon.
My friends driving up were about two hours out still, so I had a chance to move about and see what was up! In festival fashion, I connected with old friends every 100 yards, and made some new ones. This one never fails... I travel all the way here, first person I talk to in the OTM booth is from Austin!! Love that, always a sweetness!
Got the scope of the grounds, met up with my 'house-mates' and ate some free veggie burgers. Then, we trekked out to our cabin - Leeah and Jer did a good job picking this place - we're close but not on site. We've got a lovely cabin with a kitchen and two bathrooms - oh, and a hot tub!
Could be 40 degrees tonight!! Looking forward to catching a good night's sleep - on tomorrow's agenda for me: Suzanne Sterling, want to catch a class with Jonny Kest and of course, Seane!! I'll be assisting for Seane for some of the festival, but definitely in line to take FM LIGHT - a blast!!
Thanks and praise for safe travels, good friend old and new, and solid times!
