Off to Moscow

Mrs. SFO777 and I are off today for our first visit to Moscow. We loved St. Petersburg when we visited two years and have always wanted to return to Russia. And what better way to go than Singapore's almost daily IAH-DME 77W service.

Unfortunately, the only convenient nonstop way to get to IAH is on that pathetic excuse for an airline United. $828 RT First per person? Seriously? That's not going to happen... even with The Princess. Instead, I bought a cheap $252 RT Economy ticket and paid $52 for E+ exit row aisle. Even Mrs. (I hate the effin' airline) SFO said I made the right call. Amazingly rush hour on I-225 was a non-event and we arrived at DIA at T-75. Pre-Check was much improved over the last few week. Only a few kettles and we were thru in 90 seconds. No point in going to the United Club. We headed to Elway's and had one of the best breakfasts in recent memory.

And downloading pics, I had forgot about the Avs-Canadiens game we went to on Saturday.

OK, things have certainly changed since my last NHL game...

Plenty of legroom in the exit row.
