At SFO, waiting for my flight to Shanghai. Spent the night at PDX last night so as not to drag the fam to the airport at 4 AM.
# I just couldn’t make @rachelbancroft and the kids get up that early. And I don’t trust taxis/car service as far away as I live.
# @sarahcofer thanks. Keep an eye on
http://www.joshbancroft.com for photos, tweets, and other updates. 🙂 @memathews yes, for IDF. # Boarding in a bit for Shanghai. No idea what connectivity will be like on the other side. I’ll be at the mercy of wifi (no roaming for me!)
# If my plane goes down over the Pacific, @rachelbancroft has permission to sell all of my gadgets. 😉
# @jeffthegreat no idea what kind of plane it is, but its humongous. 😉 Prolly a 767.
# Anyone know if Twitter works in China? I might be even quieter than previously expected…
# Update: apparently, our plane requires 4 pilots. They only have three. Will find out in an hour if they can find a 4th pilot TODAY or not 🙁
# In other words, I might be delayed at SFO for a whole day. Can I take another night sleeping in an airport? I don’t know…
# The scene at the gate is starting to get ugly. We’ve been told there are no other flights. This is it. People are starting to get mad…
# How in the heck do they come up short a pilot for an international flight? Did he call in sick? What about backups/redundancy? Argh… 🙁
# @segphault United 🙁
# Good news: they found a pilot. Bad news: he’s in Denver. 🙁 What could have been a 24 hour delay is now only a 2 hour delay.
# I don’t believe this. We’ve been sitting on the ground in the plane for an hour and a half.
# The keep playing Good News Bad News with us. Good news our 4th pilot arrived from Denver. Bad news is, they forgot to put any fuel onboard.
# Good news is, we’re almost fueled. Bad news is, our permit to fly over Russian airspace has expired.
# They’re telling us we’ll take off in 30 minutes (3+ hours late), but I don’t believe them. This is turning into a nightmare. 🙁
# @verso yeah. I already finished the book I bought at PDX last night. And half of the Grisham novel I bought today.
# We’re pushing back. No doubt, to go sit someplace on the tarmac. Shutting down again…
