Convention Journal, Day One (Monday)
After 11. 5 hours of travel (drive 70 mi. to Dune Park Station--South Shore Electric, CTA Organe line to Midway [lugging 50 lb. suitcase up three flights of stairs], SWA to DEN and SNA [with only a long enough layover in Denver to find the next gate and board], SuperShuttle to the Anaheim Hilton), I got settled in around 4 PM. Caught an early dinner with some colleagues from the diocese (our bodies were on eastern time and we were famished). Forced myself to stay up to a locally reasonable hour in order to help get acclimated to Pacific Time. Welcomed another diocesean colleague (Christopher Wells) and had drinks while he ate dinner.
