Horrendous travel experience getting to Big Bend.

We were supposed to fly LGA to Dallas, then to Midland on Saturday, then rent a car on Sunday am and drive 4-5 hours to our "house," stopping at a Fort Davis along the way and arriving mid afternoon. We didn't get into Midland until Sunday about 4 pm and even then only one piece of luggage had arrived (on a previous flight) and we had to wait another half hour or so for the other bag to arrive. We didn't get to our house until about 10 pm. So we ended up losing most of a day and had 2 very stressful days of travel. We both agreed it was the worst travel experience we've had.

This was all a result of a large storm system that went thru Texas and a ways north on Saturday, which included thunderstorms and tornadoes. Many flights were cancelled and delayed so Dallas was a mess. Our flight from LGA to Dallas was supposed to be a bit over 4 hours but it took 8 hours. We sat on the runway in NY for over 90 min while they decided what route we should take to go around the storm. Then sat 2 hours on the runway once we got to Dallas because the airport had no open gates for any of the arriving planes. Then sat over an hour at the gate waiting for someone to extend the jet bridge to the plane--no staff!

shoes: Merrell

Green course at Tarrywile, set by Tony Muffatti

Very physical course given the little that I've run lately with a lot of side hills and steep ups and downs. Pretty sloppy map reading as well. Some interesting legs and locations we've not done before/recently. And perfect weather.
