Default Argh! Not getting home tonight.

Sitting here in Dayton, just found out my flight to Minneapolis is delayed and I'm not going to make my connection back home. Guess I'm staying in Minnesota tonight

Dang!! If I weren't 140 miles from the airport I'd take a run down and have a beer with you... I'll see if I can get ahold of Nate and see if he'* up for meeting up with you.

Sorry to hear you're gonna miss out on the connecting flight.... that almost always sucks.

Not sure yet. Northwest gave my boss and I accomodation vouchers for the night. I'll have to see when I get there. He'* taking an early flight tomorrow but I thought I'd rent a car and hang out for the day. I leave tomorrow night at 21:20.

This was a business trip and the company would have been happy to pay for a direct flight (especially since I'm travelling with the Executive Director). There is no direct flight from Dayton to Calgary.

What can you do... I just heard the delay is because of a maintenance issue with the aircraft. Just found out the new estimated departure is 22:21.

that may kinda be a problem for Nate... I have been trying to find his phone # around here in one of my old phone'* with no luck. But seeing you probably won't arrive until around Midnight, and then by the time you get to the motel and checked in it'll probably be after Midnight.
Also, if he'* still working as many hours at the refinery as he was last time I talked to him he goes in around 6 am and comes home around 6-7 pm, seven days a week. I'll still try to get ahold of him to have him check in here.

Good luck with the flight and everything.

They just announced it will definitely be going. There are two aircraft in the Detroit area, they're just deciding which one will be making the trek. I appreciate your efforts! I'm alway up for meeting members. I suspect you're right however in the past midnight arrival.
