Chicago

All was going well until Chicago. We got here on time but the connecting flight was delayed. On the bright side I was able to watch the last point in the wimbledon match just before.

Once again all was well if a little delayed and they closed the door. But the engine wouldn't start. The aux engine they use to kick start the main engine failed. They say they are getting a different one as we sit here with dwindling air and I contemplate the limits of my claustrophobia.

I've been lucky all my life to not be in this position so I guess it's my turn. Sounds like they are trying to spin things up right now. Finger's crossed.
