Thanksgiving Travel Is Upon Us: Let The Hunger Games Begin!

hunger games
Ok so, I absolutely love holiday travel – As I’ve stated in previous posts. And people, this shit just keeps on gettin’ better!

Now, according to weather services all around the country, massive storms will be sweeping through America, JUST IN TIME FOR THANKSGIVING TRAVEL!

And all I can say is, YES! YES! YES! 

This means delays, long lines, angry passengers! Oh, it’s all just too much fun!  And now there’s the chance of having snow on top of it?  I’M SORRY, HAVE I DIED AND GONE TO HEAVEN? 

This is going to turn into a real-life Plane, Trains, and Automobiles!

Do you know someone on Wikipedia actually charted the route they took from in the movie?

Oh man, it’s just all way too amazing. Have I ever told you about the time I had to run through the Denver airport to make a connection on my way home for Christmas? Denver had a massive snowstorm, and all the Frontier flights coming in got delayed. And since Frontier’s passengers are almost entirely transferring, it meant that out entire plane (including me) as well as every. single. other. Frontier. plane. was going to miss our connecting flights.

So, the airline held all the departing planes back and waited for us. People, I kid you not! The flight attendants had us line up in the aisles AS THE PLANE WAS LANDING in order of whose gate was furthest from ours. (For those who don’t know, Denver airport’s B terminal is about a half-miles long) The second we hit the gate, they flung the door open and one of the flight attendants was literally yelling, “Go! Go! Go!”

It was a dream come true! I got to have a real-life Home Alone airport scene moment, and it was glorious!

So, what will this year hold? Perhaps I’ll watch a family have a holiday meltdown in the security line? Or disgruntled passengers like Steve Martin in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, yelling at gate agents!

The holidays are just too much fun!

To anyone out there who wants some advice to make your trip a little easier, it’s this:

You’re fucked. Your ticket is already booked. The storms are coming. And AAA is predicting that this will be one of the busiest Thanksgiving travel seasons ever. You’re forced to deal with it now bitches! Mwuahahahahahaha!!!!!!!

Just learn to enjoy it!  I’ll be blogging my entire journey home, so feel free to touch-base here on the blog if you need some motivation to keep going!

THIS IS GOING TO BE SO MUCH FUN, RIGHT?!!?!
