I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
Usurious snack pricesLiza
So if you were going away for a week and packing for yourself and two kids and also packing for a trail camp, how much time would you give yourself? I went with one hour, and I’ve got to say it, was a bit tight.
I was teaching all weekend up in Austin, and I thought I’d have time Monday to get everything together before we left. Not so much. Basically, I ran from room to room and drawer to drawer with a bag throwing underwear and socks and running clothes and name tags and markers in it until the bag was full. I managed to get us into one checked bag and 3 carry ons, and was quite pleased with myself until we arrived at the Frontier Airlines checkin counter, and they explained their carryon policy. 105 dollars later, we’d more than made up the cheap ticket price. And did you know that Frontier charges for snacks? No free sugar peanuts or tiny beverage. Just usurious snack prices. The kids were pretty sad when I broke the news we wouldn’t be forking any more money over to Frontier. (Don’t worry, they managed to survive until we got to my parents’ house and ate their weight in snacks.)
Running: 75 minutes easy peasy.
