My flight to Chicago, which I needed to get to Muskegan, which I needed to board the ship, is delayed pretty much indefinitely. The good news is that the American Steamship company has at least one really nice employee who got me sorted with no problem on a flight tomorrow morning. The bad news is that, for some unfathomable reason, I had to leave the secure area to deal with a checked bag, and may have to spend the night in the baggage claim instead of the more comfortable gate area.
Oh well. At least I have a flight lined up.
