5:00 AM, Terminal B, Logan Airport, picking blueberry muffin crumbs from my keyboard. I missed the Celtics 24-point comeback win over the Lakers in game 4 of the NBA finals because of today’s early flight and the Celtics stinky first-half performance. I set two alarms to meet my 4:00 AM Boston Coach pickup. Afraid I’d miss the alarm I woke at 12:15, 1:15, 1:45, 2:30, and 3:30 AM, almost ensuring I would have slept through had the radio alarm not been set loud enough to wake the neighborhood.
Boston Coach arrived on time with Bruce and Mike W. on board. They are flying Continental, I’m flying American. The plan is to meet Peter at the Enterprise rental counter at the Portland airport, pick up the vans, pick up the bikes from Veloce Cycles in Portland, and start the drive to Boise where we pick up everyone else tomorrow.
