My southern trip didn't get off to an impressive start yesterday. America West, the airline with by far the worst on-time arrivals in the business, ended up screwing me by delaying my Sacramento departure which caused me to miss my Phoenix connection. Luckily, Arizona-native Spencer was "free" and sprung me from the PHX airport for a few hours. We went and hung out in Tempe at The Library until my flight left. The bad news on this was that I didn't get to Atlanta until 12:45 AM, so I didn't get to my hotel in Alpharetta (40 miles away) until around 3 AM.
