2800 Mile Day

Casey Smith gives me a ride to DC National Airport.

Pilots talk about airplane stuff like it's all they know
I stare out the window at the foggy runway
thinking about something different
but appreciating the pilots
being there
setting the scene

I got to see my friend Eric Staffrude in Minneapolis where I connect to Portland. We have been friends for 10 years.

A missed connection to Eugene leaves me in a Portland Holiday Inn until the morning.
