LA Bound

by Meghann on October 31, 2011

Greetings from high in the sky!


It’s been a while since I’ve blogged from an airplane. Last year I felt like I was blogging from a different one every week! I sooo do not miss that. Unfortunately my schedule looks like it’s leaning towards that same crazy travel schedule this coming month.

I’m currently on my way to Los Angeles to attend the Dole Blogger Summit (with a couple of extra days attached to the front to see my long lost twin brother), then I fly straight to Savannah to run the marathon on Saturday (that will be a fun flight/run). After the marathon I’m hitching a ride to my parents’ house with my little brother where I’ll rent a car to take me back to Tampa.

Did you get all that? Oh, it gets better.

Next Saturday I’ll be in Tallahassee for a wedding, the following Monday I’ll be heading to South Carolina for a work thing, the weekend after that I’ll be in Orlando for my little brother’s birthday, the weekend after that is Thanksgiving, and, finally, the first weekend in December I’ll be in Vegas running the half marathon.

I get dizzy just thinking about it. How did my travel schedule fill up so quickly?

Hopefully I’ll get back to my frequent-traveler-packing roots because I failed miserably this afternoon. I lost track of time catching up on work stuff from the weekend and ended up just re-packing a lot of the items I just unpacked and loaded in the wash. At least having everything already divided made it easy?

Packing snacks included roasted pumpkin seeds and a graham cracker with apple sauce.

Dinner was a packed meal that I (thankfully) remembered to throw together at the last minute.


Wraps are my favorite go-to travel food. You don’t have to worry about them getting squished, they’re easy to make, and all you have to do is peel the foil back and you’re good to go – no utensils required!

All of the above can be said for apples too.


The package of Justin’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups wasn’t exactly the Kit Kat Bar I had my heart set on, but they were already in my fridge ready to go. I’ll have to track down a Kit Kat bar soon though!


My flight was slightly delayed before take off, but the team did a great job boarding us in a timely matter.

The good news is I scored a row of seats all to myself – Yes!


The bad new is none of them recline – boo.


I’m going to save my $14.95 for inflight internet and wait to publish this until I land on the west coast.

See ya in LA!

I hope your trip to LA is a good one! I was jealous of your pumpkin seeds snack. We ate al of ours way to fast. I might have to go buy another pumpkin just so I can roast the seeds again.

I am impressed that you have the whole row of seats to yourself. I haven’t been on a flight like that in probably close to 10 years! Enjoy LA!

Oh! What part of South Carolina will you be in? I’m in Columbia going to school and would love to get together for a meal or something if you have time!

13 Crabby McSlacker November 1, 2011 at 10:15 am

Looking forward to seeing you at Dole! And I think you should be our official photographer, if you can do that well inside a plane. I can’t take a picture to save my life–either that, or all my friends and relatives just tend to be blurry.

Ah so exciting! I’ve never been to LA but it’s one place I’m DYING to go! Can’t wait to see photos!

Jealous of your empty row! My last flight (cross-country) was entirely FULL. And the woman across the aisle was eating stinky Corn Nuts. I don’t know the last time I had an empty seat next to me on a plane. I would never pay $14.95 for in flight wireless! There’s at least half an hour on each end that you can’t use electronic devices, which only leaves a couple hours – I entertain myself with non-internet laptop, reading magazines, or the in-flight movie if it’s good.
