Ok, so this is non-cycling related … absolutely nothing about cycling in this post.
I decided, this time, to fly down to LA in off-peak hours. Slightly cheaper fare, plus getting in, and out of the airport was such a breeze. I didn’t feel like a cow, being herded into the plane. I actually had room. Coming back, it was a similar thing … plus, as soon as I got back, went to the Airport Flyer shuttle, it had just arrived, and the driver waited long enough for me to rush into the bus. Then, my connecting bus just arrived too … I just barely put my bag on the ground, and here comes the bus.
Coming back in bright daylight helps too. Win win!
