Poor Kim Krause Berg. She got stuck in Chicago on the way to SES San Jose and arrived a day late. To make matters worse, she got stuck on the way back home. She shares her frightening travel adventures on Cre8asite Forums and wonders if anyone else has run into the same thing.
Fortunately for Kim (?), she's not the only one that it's happened to. Forum member khalidh used to spend 21 hours traveling for work:
On the last project, I was travelling from Rochester, NY to Houston. The flight was suppose to take 5 hours. I usually left Rochester on Thursday at 5 pm and got to Houston at 2 pm the next day.
swainzy's friend hit a 35-hour delay once:
My girlfriend had a flight cancelled last spring and had to sleep on the Denver Airports floor. The delay was 35 hours.
joedolson has a story that's similar to Kim's:
When I was coming back from Vienna last summer, my flight from NYC to Minneapolis was cancelled twice in one night.
Oy. Time for a fully virtual conference? But then I wouldn't be able to take all these great pictures. Ah well, the end result is worth it. :)
