It’s hard to believe that it’s already come and gone, but the trip to California this year was everything that I could have hoped that it would be. In short it was an adventure in which I made a host of new friends, got to see and experience a ridiculous amount of great beers and made my Hollywood debut all in one trip.
Leaving… on a jet plane!
Kicking off the trip was un-eventful, grabbed a morning flight out of Boise to Seattle for a brief layover before making the second jaunt on to L.A. It was boarding the second flight out of Seattle that I knew, beyond any doubt, that this was going to be an incredible trip. I lucked out and took advantage of a Delta promotion to upgrade my 3 hour flight from Seattle to First Class and if you ever have the opportunity I highly recommend it (on any kind of extended flight at least). Aside from far superior seating, you’re actually treated like a valued customer with extremely attendant flight service. Before I was even settled in my seat, a flight attendant was ready to take my drink order and I started sipping on whisky while the rest of the plane was boarding. Hot towel, yes thank you I would like to freshen up. I mean come on, this is over the top in an all sorts of wonderful way. Ohh yes, I would like another whiskey while the rest of the plane is boarding, why thank you very much!
