Surprise Slumber Party

Greetings from Dulles Airport.  As soon as I finish  my post I will be laying down on the floor of Gate A6 and catching a few hours sleep.  Mechanical problems caused our flight from Denver to be delayed for four hours so we missed our final leg to Roanoke.

I would like to think our three seats went to some family members or loved ones who were anxiously trying to get to Blacksburg.  Can you imagine flying standby in that situation?  It would be excruciating.  Thinking our seats went to a good use makes it very easy to sleep on an airport floor. 

Speaking of which, I best stake out my dark corner before it gets snatched away.

Good night

    Word of advice– if you do have to stay in Dulles go to Terminal C– their chairs do not have armrests so you can stretch out.

    We, unfortunately, went to Terminal A, where the offerings were not so good.

    […] I upgraded to a futon mattress. I’ve slept on trains. I’ve slept on planes. I’ve slept on the floor of Dulles Airport. During my separation, I slept in a variety of places including a green chair, a tent and one night […]
