If my calculations are correct Toby should be just getting ready to fly out of Vegas, or has been in the air for an hour.

Remind us never to let you navigate, or set the timers on any fuses, mmkay?

True, just not sure what time zone Vegas is in, my memory fails me

Okay, guys, I'm flipping out here. Of course this can't go smoothly. Even though Kirk had Toby there in plenty of time, Toby did not get on the flight he was supposed to be on. He left on a later flight and won't be in to O'Hare until 2303. When I called the young lady who is supposed to drive me, she backed out.

I AM TOTALLY FLIPPED. I'm going to have to park my car, find my way to the Delta terminal, get the dog, take him out to the parking deck, hope I can find my car, disassemble the cage, secure it in the trunk of my little Honda. All this in the middle of the night and alone.

Even though I'm flipped, I'll get it done. I just won't be happy about it.

Winds, please check out renting a larger car at O'Hare, think big like a Hummer or a van. Park at the airport. Get the rental car when Toby becomes available. Put the carrier in the back seat or rear compartment. Go back for your car in the morning.

Man, is Pengie ever pissed off. He found out about Winds situation and wants to go steal a plane a fly up there HIMSELF!!!

More seriously, I understand that things are kind of working out. Be careful up there. Pretty sure the airport guys in the pet handling area will be supportive. If not, Pengie and I will be leading the charge to correct their attitude!

That is terrible. It is true that no good deed goes unpunished.
