Leaving on a Jet Plane…

Plane taking off from Bellingham Airport

I’m sitting in the Bellingham International Airport in Bellingham, Washington. They’ve got FAST, free wi-fi here! Yay!

I’m on my way to Palm Springs to play some golf with my girlfriend and my folks. I haven’t been down there for about four years, but last time I went we had a blast. Really, what’s better than golfing in the sunshine during the day and doing a bit of gambling in the evenings?

I’m flying on Allegiant Air for an incredibly reasonable price. The only downside was that I had to leave Vancouver at 3:15am this morning. The good news is that there were no other cars at the border, so it took me less than an hour to get from my home in Burnaby to the Bellingham Airport.

The staff here at the airport have been super friendly and helpful. I’m hoping the flight will be just as good – will report on the flight later this week.

I still can’t get over how great it is to have wi-fi in the airport – it makes waiting for your flight a whole lot better.

If you’re interested in golf you might enjoy Guys on Golf.

Rod Brind’Amour & Kim Black: Cystic Fibrosis in Raleigh

Rod Brind’Amour is from my hometown and is really involved in helping Cystic Fibrosis raise funds for research and treatment. I just received an email from the Campbell River Cystic Fibrosis chapter that pointed me to a video with Rod and Kim Black down in Raleigh, North Carolina. They’re at an award dinner for a doctor who’s been researching Cystic Fibrosis for over 30 years. Here’s the video.
