I'm leaving, on a jet plane..........

I scored a trip to Anchorage. For free (i'll tell you about that in a later post). So I am leaving on the 151 tomorrow and returning on the 153 on Thursday. That means I am leaving Kotzebue at 8:20am, arriving in Anchorage at 11:20am by way of Nome, then leaving Anchorage at 5:20pm on Thursday and arriving back in Kotzebue around 7pm.

Just over twenty four hours in civilization!

My friend Cathy was going to be heading to Anchorage later on Wednesday for a work conference, so she changed her flight to the same flight as mine and is going to show me the ropes of shopping, packing and shipping from Anchorage to Kotzebue.

What's on my agenda?

Well, first I have a super secret appointment on Wednesday at 1:00. I love secrets!
I'll fill ya'all in on it when I get back.

After that?

Target.......... I miss my Bullseye!

Costco..........groceries in bulk!

A haircut........I'm desperate!

Walmart.........only if Cathy insists!

Starbucks.........no, I've gone this long without, why now?

Applebees........on request of my family that I bring home Honey Boneless BBQ Wings for dinner Thursday.

Alaska Airlines allows you to check THREE bags for flights within Alaska. So I will be heading there with only one change of clothes in my carry-on and returning with three Rubbermaid totes of groceries and household items that we have disovered we need.

I'm leaving my laptop at home. Mosty just to prove to my honey that I can live without for two days.

I hope I survive..................

You are so full of secrets these days!! I would love to see a picture of your haul - and see what you had to fly several hours to find!

Amy said...

Can't wait to hear all about it! And for the record, I don't like secrets! Not knowing yours is killing me!

Elena said...

What a smart idea. I love your family's request of Applebees. You better make it a triple order. Have fun, this will be better than going to the mall!

Meredith said...

If it is not a hair appointment what is it?? Your mother does not weather secrets very well.
Have fun, lots of it.

Finnskimo, its more than just a name... said...

You should have taken my luggage scale. :) It measures fifty pound bags/totes with ease. My bags are always exactly 50 lbs! :)

And you should also get a large carry on to take with you! You know, since you won't have your laptop bulking you up!

Good Luck.

I just feel terrible that I know the secret! Good luck, know'em dead...not literally!

You will be such a sassy shopper that you will not have time for computer time. Oh I'm so delighted for you. Sounds like a wonderful adventure. You deserve it.

Just out of curiousity, is it afforadable to fly from your place to Anchorage?

Dee said...

I meant knock'em dead!

Kris said...

Mara said...

Lula! said...

Trish, I cannot WAIT to hear all about this trip. And your super secret.

I had no idea you could haul stuff in Rubbermaid containers on an airplane. I've learned so much from you these past few weeks...maybe we need to invite ourselves to come visit. (Since your family is known for inviting themselves into the homes of strangers...ahem...Dave...cough-cough.)
