For What It’s Worth, below is a link to a post that I published over on blogspot relating to our recent flights from Detroit to Seattle to Anchorage.


For What It’s Worth, Patti and I are still recovering from the ordeal of our trip and from the four hour Jet Lag between here in Anchorage and back down in Detroit. 

Still Standing. Still Smiling.

    Hi Cap and Patti. I am impressed that you had enough energy to post anything at all. I was trying to figure how many hours it took from first airport to last but the time zones threw me off. I guessed about 24 hours. Be extra kind to yourself, extra rest and lots of patience to give your poor body a chance to recover.

      Kathleen here are the numbers.

      We arrived at the Detroit Metro Airport at about 6am Eastern time (it was actually about 5:50am) on Monday the 6th of June. Had everything gone as scheduled, we were due to arrive on Monday June 6th into Anchorage at 12pm Eastern (which was 8pm Alaska Time). So had all gone according to schedule, our total trip would have been 18 hours.

      The actual trip was : We arrived at the Detroit Metro Airport at about 6am Eastern time (it was actually about 5:50am) on Monday the 6th of June. We then waited in the Detroit Metro Airport for 16 hours departing at 10pm and arriving into Seattle at about 11:30pm West Coast (2:30am Eastern on June 7th) on June 6th. Then (after only two hours of sleep in a Seattle hotel) we left Seattle on Tuesday Morning June 7th at 7:30am (10:30am Eastern) arriving into Anchorage at 10am Alaska (2pm Detroit Eastern). So our TOTAL ACTUAL TRAVEL TIME was 32 hours Kathleen. Thirty Two Hours is an exhausting trip no matter how you figure it.

      At this point in our lives, now we also have jet lag to deal with, the recovery time is considerable (say a week??). Thanks so much for asking Kathleen. Cap and Patti

      Thanks for you good wishes Olga. At this point in time Olga, we don’t know about future travel adventures. Right now we are very (as in VERY) happy to be home in Alaska enjoying some outstanding summertime weather. Cap and Patti

          Our feral Bunny Rabbit is alive and very well. He (we assume it is a male rabbit) has been very visible the past few days. We’ll have to show a photo of our nice weather Olga. Smiles. Cap and Patti
