so we've all had an interesting past 24 hours...right now, jordan and i are sitting in the vancouver airport waiting to board a flight to williams lake, british columbia for a show tonight. cody and brian are sleeping at a hotel somewhere near the airport here. so how did we get here? glad you asked...
cody and brian left nashville, tennessee at 10am yesterday, flew to toronto, canada, then flew to vancouver to meet up with the rest of us for our flight to williams lake LAST NIGHT. jordan flew from phoenix, arizona to seattle, washington and met me there after i flew from fresno, california to san francisco, california to seattle. our flight was then delayed from seattle to vancouver by about 50 minutes. we finally landed in vancouver at about 6pm and our flight left for williams lake at 6:15pm. unfortunately, we had to go through customs and get our bags and re-check-in and go through security and all that fun stuff.
we never got that far.
our bags did not show up in vancouver. awesome. so we ran to try to make the flight, but they left without us. i was calling and texting cody telling him to hold the plane for us, but they could only delay about ten minutes. what a nightmare.
the story doesn't end there.
jordan and i go over to the air canada counter and they are kind enough to get us a hotel room and dinner vouchers for the evening and we are booked on the first flight out the next morning. i guess it's a good thing i planned ahead and had us fly in the day before the show. anyway, we're sitting down to dinner at our hotel when cody texts me (from the plane) and says that they are turning around because of a blizzard that was hitting williams lake. unbelievable. the problem is, when they get back the airline says they cannot give them a hotel or anything since the problem was weather related, so they have to go get a cheap hotel somewhere near the airport and are not going to make it to williams lake until sometime this afternoon.
this has been one of the strangest fly-dates of my life and we're not even to our destination yet. o canada!
