Travelling remote to remote. Crestone Mountain Zen Center takes longer to get to from Denver airport (or Albuquerque either) than Port Angeles from SeaTac. With worse winter-weather worries. Mountain driving. But I haven't seen Roshi for a long time.
Happy to report however that wireless is finally free at SeaTac. Google paid for it 'for the holidays' and SeaTac surrendered to the logic of the situation by announcing it will continue 'free forever'.
