Good morning, Charlotte …

A room with a view.

A room with a view.

… why so chilly? Please don’t make me wear pants on a Friday.

The flight out was uneventual, thanks for asking, which is to say that it sucked. The good thing about my connecting flights in Denver and Chicago being late is that I did not miss them, which seemed a high order of probability when I set out yesterday afternoon. And why is the under-seat space bigger in a pond-hopping turbo-prop than in a 737? Just asking.

Lights out came around 2 a.m. local time and lights on came way too bloody early. It’s barely above freezing and my shorts and T-shirts will stay in the closet for a while yet. But that closet is 23 floors up in a Westin hotel, so, yeah, I got that going for me, which is nice.

Now it’s time to grab some grub and scope out the North American Handmade Bicycle Show.

    Nicest sounding business trip I’ve heard of in a while

    Beats the shit out of a TRANSCOM flight to Ali Al Salem with a C-17 connection to Victory Base.

    Or anything involving Philadelphia.

    You know what I really like about NAHMB? Thanks to their influence on the industry, guys like me don’t have to get in shape… We can just grow a beard, put on a Dickies mech shirt, get a couple of tattoos, and we can still wedge ourselves into the bike culture world. Although we are frequently confused for craft beer brewers.

    Congratulations. I always have a change of clothes and small bathroom kit in the Timbuktu bag just in case I get stuck.

    You have Room Service, too!

    Glad you made it ok and you didn’t end up on Lost island with the black smoke.

    Ciao PO’G! I made it to the show, let’s meet up for some hair-of-the dog that bit you last night. You can email me for details.

    Welcome to NC fellas! That tallest building in the middle Patrick is BoFA tower. Please feel free to flip it off at will on behalf of the proletariat. We will appreciate it.

    And hey…it made it up to 60ish today. I’d call that reasonably seasonal. It was in the 70s earlier this week though. I hope y’all enjoy the show.
