If that headline doesn’t grab your attention, I don’t know what will. Normally, I do one write up, but since my odyssey is ongoing, I will break it up into segments. My saga started with what was supposed to be a ten thirty AM flight to Memphis (July 3rd), for a hotel stay prior to the riverboat actually leaving on July 4th. By the time, I got to the airport, my flight was canceled, and everything was booked solid since it was a holiday weekend. Fortunately, this intrepid traveler remembered his Boy Scout training and the motto “Be Prepared”, and I had also bought tickets for a 7PM flight and a 7 AM flight the next morning on SWA. So I just used the 7PM flight and cancelled the 7AM flight scheduled for the next morning once I arrived in Memphis. Since it was SWA, I will use the flight credit another time. Still, it was a LONG travel day, and I was at the airport for almost half a day. Coming up, the cruise details!
