Made it to Vail!

Thursday, August 10, 2006 | 09:44 PM

I picked a hell of a day to travel!

Today, I left JFK to go to a conference in Denver Vail, Colorado-- and let me tell you, it could have been a lot worse.

We got to airport extra early, whizzed thru security, and departed on time.

More on the conference later this weekend . . .


UPDATE August 11, 2006 6:17am (4:17 local time)

We moved all of our liquids to our carry on luggage, which we then checked. Denver International has the fastest luggage claim I have efver seen -- by the time we got to the baggage carousel, the bags were already doing the lazy circle.

glad you made it and glad that you are among the minyans, but am more conerned about why my company says to our international travellers that it would be understandable if they were concerned about travelling, but clients come first, so tough.

The contrast is with a different CEO who after 9/11 ordered everybody home regardless of the transport or the cost and told everybody in the company to take their family out to dinner to sort things out and the corp would cover up to $100 of the bill. Agreed that a threat and an attack are different things, but that doesn't excuse ordering some 22 year old consultant who was 17 when all of that happened to keep getting on planes.
