23 Days Into Nuffield and the Wheels Have Temporarily Stopped
Well the day started off on schedule, up before the alarm clock, well actually I didn't get much sleep, always nervous of over-sleeping and being late especially when travelling. I made the brief walk across from the Ramada Hotel to Spokane International airport and made the flight to Denver.
The sunrise was fantastic as I made my way onto the plane. The next plane journey I had to take was delayed from Denver on to Pierre, in South Dakota so I busied myself on the blog I even made time for a beer. Flatteringly I was asked for ID. Now I'm not sure of the drinking age in Denver but I'm sure isn't over 40! I drank my beer and wandered the 20m, at the most, over to the boarding gate and the plane had already left. I hadn't heard the final call, even though I was so close. So here I am sitting and waiting for the next plane 10 hours after I arrived in Denver. I might get a standby in another hour, if not it will be a 3 hour flight round the houses instead of a one hour flight., leaving a further hour later.
On the plus side I have caught up with lots of work e-mails and researched a little bit more about Agriculture in The Classroom so it hasn't been a complete waste of time. I even had a nice time on Skype with my wife Andrea back at home which was great. Just sorry I haven't caught up with Tom as planned. Even more to do tomorrow, when we start work in South Dakota!
