*On the flight from Fargo to Denver I sat by North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple. I introduced myself and he pretended to know who I was so it was all good. We talked mostly about
Sioux North Dakota hockey. He had been at the Friday Minnesota game and was heading to Denver on Saturday to see his daughter.
*The Denver airport is an odd mix of old and new. The newer part is very nice. The older part is really…old.
*While in the Denver airport you’re going to want to check out a place called Steak Escape. Philly Cheese Steaks. Exactly what you need before a seven hour flight.
*United Airlines from Fargo to Denver to Maui. “Moneyball” was the best movie on the flight.
*Denver to Maui: Seven hours. Maui to Denver: Five and half hours. I wish someone could explain that to me.
*The four hour time change between Grand Forks and Hawaii is a tricky coconut to solve.
*Probably a heavy dose of Maui related stories for the rest of the week. You’ve been warned. Mahalo.
