Blogging from 30,000 Feet

Post by blogger | January 8, 2013      

Let’s just say it had to be done. Looking forward to that first weizen. This is coming at you as a liveblog.

In-flight internet on Lufthansa is a bit slow, but it works. I could not resist.

I just had a nice German lager, watched a movie, and now waiting for dinner. Then wake up in Munchen. It’s said Dynafit has some pretty crazy stuff to show us. Kind of tough keyboarding now that the person in front has tilted his seat back, but WildSnow is known for their sacrifice to blog any time, anywhere.

    Hey! Any chance to meet my ski-blogging hero during your stay? Going skiing on the weekend?

    Wookie, it’s a quick trip and I’ll be kinda busy, but keep your eyes out for any Wildsnow sightings (grin).

    Tilting your seat back on an international flight is like going for a tour without avy gear. A major faux pas.

    Impressive. But WildSnow fans are eager for true “field reports”….how about live-blogging from the Aiguille du Midi cable car, or from the Bertol hut?? If wifi access is unavailable there, perhaps the Hofbrauhaus? A short piece on the comparative merits of schnitzel vs. the pork knuckle for absorbing copious quantities of Weissen?

    What??? Not in first class? Look forward to your reports.

    We’ll be up at Dynafit press event, blogging from there I hope (if they’ve got wifi). So we’ll do our best to bring some semi-live blogging as I usually do from good old Europa.

    Flight went well, super smooth. Got to Munich last evening and ride from friend brought us near Innsbruck to our usual haunt at our friends the Barthels house in Bad Haering, Austria. More soon.

    Isn’t that the town where the deaf-aid was invented?

Got something to say? Please do so.
