On The Road Again

The Traveling Jack Tour Bus is just about to leave for the airport so that we can go share joy, mirth and merriment across the country. Of course that means that Old Jack has to go sit inside a stuffed tin can for a few hours, but that is ok.

I have got a window seat, book and movies and music to accompany me. Not to mention snacks, can’t forget the snacks because if you do it will cost you $35.00 for a stale bagel with shmear on it.

Anyhoo, I make make the odd appearance around the blogosphere later today but I wouldn’t expect to see anything new from me until late tomorrow night or maybe Tuesday.

    I always wanted to take the Orient Express. For some reason this post made me think of that. =)

    Up, up and away; best of luck on your journey and here’s to no $35 bagel shmears…………

    I love planes! I also used to love airplane food…back in the day! My favorite part was deplaning and walking down the stairs onto the hot tarmac and humid air of the tropics. I don’t like how tunnels connect the pane to the airport now. 
    That’s all I have to say about traveling. Enjoy the trip. Have a grand adventure!

       @CrossBetsy Hi Betsy,
      I used to enjoy walking the stairs too. They still do it at one of our local airports so sometimes I get to “revisit” the past. Airplane food is a different story, not a fan.

    Hi Jack, 
    Good luck, keeping my fingers crossed and thinking of you!

    When I’m travelling I don’t feel eating. It makes me sick. 🙁

    Hi Jack,
    “Stuffed tin can” about sums it up 😉 My In-laws used to only be concerned with how many miniatures they could sneak on the flight 😉 How many did you get by TSA? 
    Hope you have (had) a safe trip.

       @Craig McBreen Hi Craig,
      The TSA paid special attention to me this trip. Always fun to be groped, but I would rather them check than not so I didn’t mind…much.
      Technically I think there actions may mean that in certain countries we would be married, but I am not sure…

    Have a good trip Jack. I always buy way too much snacks when I travel, and at the same time I am always worrying that I need to go to the toilet… that’s a catch 22 isn’t it? 🙂

    I’m sending you snacks. Good ones. Have a great time, wherever it is you’re headed (I probably missed that somewhere along the line) Cheers! Kaarina

      Hi Kaarina,
      Snacks are always good, especially Finnish pancakes. Ok, I haven’t had any of those yet but one of these days…

      • jonbuscall June 25, 2012 at 11:51 pm

         @TheJackB  @KDillabough I lived in Finland for three years and LOVED Finnish pancakes. Pirog are awesome too. I think I had them for lunch nearly every day :=)

           @jonbuscall  @TheJackB You know Jon, with my Olympic/sports involvement I’ve had the opportunity to travel all over the world, but I’ve not yet been to Finland, where my parents are from. I spoke Finnish before I learned English, and have been told wonderful tales of the Land of the Midnight Sun. I.am.jealous:)))) And I will make Finnish pancakes for you too:)

      • KDillabough June 26, 2012 at 4:46 am

         @TheJackB I will make some for you…anytime:)

    Have a safe and comfortable flight, Jack.
