trip tidbits

Rather than bore you with a travelogue of our trip to Glorieta, here are some of my observations/tidbits from the week:
  • Yet again, the Sit 'n Stroll proves it is completely awesome. I don't think we could have made our connections if we had to wait for a gate-checked stroller. We used it instead of a high chair in the dining hall.
  • The Kia Forte is not a bad little car.
  • Staybridge Suites is fantastic.
  • DirectTV on Frontier is awesome, especially when traveling with a toddler. They also let us pre-board. Too bad they are going bankrupt.
  • New Mexico is still a long way from Nashville, but it is still incredibly beautiful.
  • Altitude sickness is the worst on the fourth day. Either that, or I quit drinking as much water later in the week.
  • The Flying Star Cafe is a great family-friendly place to eat in Santa Fe. We ate there twice.
  • Adam is a pretty good little traveler.
  • If the Glorieta Conference Center folks knew how much Adam ate, they would have charged us for his meals.
  • I still didn't see if there is actually anything to the town of Glorieta. The roads are not paved, and we didn't have a four-wheel drive.
  • There is a Trader Joe's in Santa Fe!
  • Fernando Ortega is great performer in addition to being a really nice guy.
  • I take a fast internet connection for granted.
  • If you have a choice, I would advise against waking an 18-month-old at 4:30 am to catch a 6:00 am flight.
