Traveling to Denver

I drove w/ my wife to the Austin Airport. I got out of our car at the Southwest Terminal. I kissed my wife goodbye and she drove off. I checked my bag curbside & went inside the terminal. I got a call from my wife. She told me that I had her keys w/ me. I absent-mindedly pocketed them when I got out of my car. She circled around & picked them up from me. Fortunately, I hadn't gone thru the TSA checkpoint.

After the checkpoint, I chilled until my flight was called. I boarded & flew to Denver.

A former Scout lived in Denver & he was going to give me a ride from the airport to my hotel in Littleton. He was also going to buy me a fuel canister for my hike. I texted him when I landed. He lived close to the airport & he and a friend of his drove to the airport. We had some problems initially hooking up as I was on one level & he was on another. Eventually, we figured out the problem & hooked up. I offered to pay for his parking fee. But, the parking lot exit was malfunctioining and we didn't have to pay at all. Sweet.

We had a longish drive to my hotel. It was nice to catch up w/ Kyle on the drive. His friend was an old college friend who was in the Navy & visiting him in Denver. I grabbed a quick meal before arriving at my hotel. I thanked him again. I paid him for the fuel canister & bid him goodbye.
