(Sept28) I set two alarms for 2:50 a.m. to make sure I would be awake for the 3 a.m. shuttle. My clothes were laid out like a fireman’s. I was all packed except for the fleece I was wearing to bed. I awoke before the alarm. The bus drivers had taken the tents beside me. “Alright, mates. It’s two-thirty. Time to get a leg up.” My flight plan is Brisbane to Melbourne to Los Angeles to San Francisco to Eugene. I arrive in Eugene after 4 p.m., so I should get to my hotel by 6 p.m.
Without calculating each leg of my journey, total travel time (on schedule is):
3 a.m. to 6 p.m. >>> 15 hours
Time difference >>> 17 hours
Total in transit >>> 32 hours
I’m sure it sounds worse that it will really be !!!
