Smooth ride over tonight even though there was a big series of storms lined up to hit the bay area. Looks like the plane took a direct Pacific crossing istead of the usual route of hugging the coast around the artic. Instead, the flight path took us just north of Hawaii and straight into Taiwan.
Have returned this way a number of times, but this is the first time I've gone west on this route.
Had an early arrival this morning..5:30 and will be in the mango by 10:30.
CNN showing more election coverage....can't even hide from this stuff even on the other side of the bookend.
