Landed at Burbank Airport. Long day!
Landed in San Francisco. One more flight to go to Burbank (1 1/2 hour flight) then get rental car and drive another 1 1/2 hours to Ojai. Long friggin day!!
On the shuttle, then in terminal waiting.
Landed in Newark. Fred got his bass on the plane - Yay! They stopped me because I had my guitar and a small computer bag. They said I was only allowed 1 bag. I took a bunch of my computer stuff and put it in my guitar case and went to check my tiny little almost empty bag. The counter lady looked it up and said it would be $170!!!! So, she said "just put the little bag on the big one and walk past me like it's 1 bag". Whew! Dodged an expensive bullet!! Thanks lady!
Because Samite bought the cheapest tickets, they say Fred can't bring his bass on the plane! We're pretty upset by this!
