Bryan’s trip started out with some hurdles. After an upgrade to first class, his pre-flight beverage was taking a long time to get to him, and the flight attendants didn’t seem the least bit worried. This kind of complication almost rivals what might be facing him at below freezing temperatures on Mount Vinson, so obviously I felt bad for him. I even suggested Bryan turn around now if this is any kind of omen about what lies ahead. That Bryan, he powered through, though! He came out strong during his layover in Hot-lanta only to find the Delta Sky Lounge and refuel for his flight to South America. Already showing such perseverance and strength! Bryan is an inspiration to us all! I only hope his pre-flight beverages don’t take so long in the future.
