Portland Day 1. I’m traveling to the Episcopal Communicators’ Conference in Portland Oregon

The conference runs Thursday and Friday, and I’m here for a pre-conference workshop on Wednesday. Saturday will be another travel day.

I picked a seat too close to the aeroplane’s wing, and it obscured the view. Shooting below the wing there was a lot of visual disturbance from the jet exhaust.

I was up at 4:30 a.m. and on a ‘plane to Denver by 6:00 a.m. What with the time difference I ought to be in the hotel by 11:30 a.m. I had a very tight connection at Denver – my ‘plane to Portland was already boarding when I arrived at the gate. The ‘plane was also lightly loaded – I had three seats to myself and I could have laid down for a snooze. The last time that happened I was flying Emirates from India back to the UK on December 22 (I forget what year! I remember the date because Elaine, my first wife, had told me not to bother coming home if I didn’t get back in time for Christmas!).

Unfortunately on the way back I have a 3 hour layover at Denver, and the time zones will be going against me, so I’ll leave in the morning and not get home until the late evening.
