    Let the kids take you to the airport next time. If you think about all the middle of the nights we were up with our kids-feeding, illness, bad dreams-they can get up and take you a few times a year to the airport.

    That's what we do... and we pay what we'd pay a livery service!

    We were going to try Uber for the first time this year. Now I'm rethinking that plan. We have a 6am flight out of Logan. My son is coming to watch the doggie. Wonder how he'd feel about getting up at 3:30 am to take us to the airport too. Hmm, might have to use that "I got up at 3am to feed you" guilt trip.... We did the run to the gate thing on our California trip last summer and it was not fun!!

    Now that you are there - enjoy!!!

    Usually UBER or LYFT in our area like the run to the airport. Syracuse's Airport, being fairly small, is easy in and out, so they don't get tied up in traffic. There were not a lot of cars available with either service early Sunday morning, which we think could have been the problem. We'll probably try them again, but next time we'll pay more attention to availability.

    Running to the gate is not a fun or pretty experience for us. Did you ever see senior citizens hoofing it

    We also leave out of Logan and always stay at the airport Hilton the night before. It’s just so much less stressful and you get at least a little extra sleep since you’re already there.

    I was nearly hyperventilating just reading that start to your trip. You’re missing a nasty storm at home today and into tomorrow. All the more reason to soak it all in!

    I'm thirsty too! Tell us about the Happy Hour you went to in order to relieve that first stressful day at the airport.
