Heading North

The road trip is over while I'm still in Anchorage. Right now, I'm sitting in the Anchorage airport waiting for my flight to Barrow. Even if I had left from Fairbanks I would still be sitting here waiting for the next flight. Alaska Airlines had cancelled the direct flight from Fairbanks to Barrow so the only option is to fly from Fairbanks to Anchorage, then Anchorage to Prudhoe, then Prudhoe to Barrow. A lot of legs for what used to be a 75 minute flight.  

This is a planned trip and since I was already in Anchorage, it made sense to fly out of here to Barrow.

But at least the flights are short. At least, short enough so that it really doesn't matter what seat you get.

Ugh, some spots are just difficult to reach, Richard.

It used to be easy before they cancelled the flight. It's the same flight from Anchorage to Barrow only they used to stop in Fairbanks along the way.

Have fun in Barrow. Are you enjoying 'retirement'?

Actually, yes. The Barrow project was by far the most interesting part of the university job for the last several years.
