Rock and Roll Airlines

Well, I'm on the plane...

Still on the ground right now, but all signs are good.

Chuck, Kirkwood, Sean and the girls are all stuck in Taipei until at least tomorrow. I'm going to have to send the folks at NBA travel a thank you card for putting me on this flight.

The first 30 minutes in the flight are going to be the exciting ones...

Sitting on the ground at the gate this plane is shaking like a dog trying to pass a peach pit...

The climb-out of TPE is going to be a carnival ride. We have sustained 80kph winds outside... Nothing like riding the Vomit Comet to Narita, 3 hours of retching and gagging... And not in the good way, if you know what I mean.

I really dont know what it is, but you definitely draw the short straw when you fly. Best of luck.

Oh, man. That sounds horrible, yet you paint such a wonderful picture; more of an adventure now. Hope not all passengers rush the bathroom to toss up random airport liquor and eats at the same time.

Oh, long-time reader, first time commenter.
