This posting made from Dallas airport. I’ve used the future posts feature to hopefully post this when I am underway. The word “hopefully” has snuck in there since my Chicago bound flight has a sign “delayed ???”. Appparently there are storms in Chicago delaying us at least two hours in departure, and my connecting flight as well.
I packaged up my bike and gear. It weighed in at 57 pounds for gear. Yikes!, though actually not a lot different from when I departed LA to Australia six years ago. I’ll see about shedding some gear on the way though.
Update: reached Amsterdam – uneventful flight and only an hour delay. More later.
