Well my initial flight took off today on time, what I didn’t know was that one of the front tires blew out on take off. We had to turn around and land back at Buffalo because when the tire blew it loosened the landing gear cover. Landing on one wheel didn’t seem that bad until the second wheel blew and we started to come to a complete stop 🙂 At least we came to a complete stop. The pilot and crew were excellent the whole time. Everything seemed normal….

The bad part was I missed my connecting flight and there was no way to get out until either really late tonight or sometime tomorrow. With everyone scrambling to get flights everywhere, I just decided I was better off rescheduling. I only had until 4:00 pm to cancel my hotel reservation and shuttle service or I was commited to them. If I got into California late tomorrow night Monday would be a complete waste at the camp.

I can’t believe I did all that packing and planning this week for nothing! Everything turned out well though so I can’t really complain, it could of been a lot worse 🙂

    That sucks but I am glad you are “here” to blog about it. Could have been worst. Everything happens for a reason.

    On the bright side, you have more time to prepare 🙂 Make this week a bootcamp for you since you already requested time off 🙂 Fix your BGP issues 😉

    I am pretty sure Mother Nature just didn’t want me to get out of racking the leaves that dropped today…

    Holy Crap dude! I am mainly glad to hear you are OK! Sorry to hear about that, hopefully Narbik will be cool about rescheduling and you will be able to make it next time.

    Wow, that’s terrible that you had to miss your scheduled class! Tires blowing on a plane??? Scary!

    Narbik’s class is still definitely worth the wait, though.
