Travel Thoughts: Chapel Hill, NC

  • “North Carolina, c’mon and raise up! Take your shirt off, twist it ’round your head, spin it like a helicopta!”
  • Thank you, Petey Pablo, for never letting me hear the words “North Carolina” without singing your stellar lyrics in my head… or out loud for all to hear.
  • Saturday: 3:45 pm, arrive at airport
  • 3:50 pm see that flight is delayed from 4;45 to 5:20. No biggie. I’ll read.
  • 5:45 pm board plane to Baltimore.
  • 6:45 pm de-plane. It’s going to be awhile before anybody can go to Baltimore because of all the storms/tornados. I’ll keep reading.
  • 10:00pm re-board plane. Thank you Southwest Airlines for my free wine.
  • 12:00am arrive in Baltimore to catch my plane to Raleigh/Durham. I’m gettin’ sleepy.
  • 1:00am. Plane arrives, pilots timed out. Flight to Raleigh/Durham cancelled.
  • 2:00am leave Baltimore in rental car for the 300 mile drive to Chapel Hill. Luckily, the roads are empty and the rain has stopped. Un-luckily, I’m tired as ish.
  • Why have I seen 6 people walking on the freeway since I’ve started driving? In 3 different places…
  • 4:30am Pull in to McDonald’s (don’t judge me, I had no other choice, nothing was open) for a coffee and a coke. I needed caffeine so I didn’t drive off the road.
  • 5:00am regret my previous choice. I don’t drink either of those very often so now my stomach hates me. But I’m awake, so I guess I’ll be glad of that.
  • 7:00am pull into Chapel Hill parking lot. It’s beautiful here. Recline seat. Fall asleep.
  • 8:00am get up, go into Studio 54 East, wash my face, brush my teeth, change my clothes. Teach a full TRX Certification course to 21 trainers/instructors.
  • This is the cutest studio I’ve ever seen. With the sweetest owner I’ve ever met. She bought me a breakfast sandwhich and protein bar too! I love you, Katie.
  • 5:00pm head to Raleigh/Durham airport.
  • 6:30pm board plane to Baltimore.
  • 8:30pm fall asleep in BWI airport with head in hand.
  • 9:30pm wake up (with huge red area on my forehead, I’m sure) to find our flight is delayed. Awesome.
  • 10:30pm take off. I fall asleep on the edge of the seat of the old guy next to me. I. Dont. Care.
  • 12:30am arrive in Louisville.
  • 1:00am head hits pillow.
So that was my weekend. Not a whole lot of anything else happening besides me traveling so sorry this one’s not as interesting or funny. I’ll be back to posting as soon as I make up for all the lost sleep. I’m heading to bed for a two hour nap. : )

  1. Whoah…sounds like a very intense trip…I have so been there. Once, I was travelling to Vegas with a 10am scheduled arrival and my plane didn’t get in until 3am (wow, was that a LONG day).

    btw…who does walk on the freeway…that is just creepy and strange!
