Comic 810 – “Errol Mornings”Posted on December 11, 2013 by Errol • 6 Comments Errol: Back to Orycon! Huzzah! Poor Debs. She always goes to bed later, I always wake up earlier. Debs: Traveling to the west coast is awesome because I can sleep in and still get up at a normal local time 🙂 Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)
Yes the West Coast is awesome! You should totally come for a visit again.
Now on the East Coast… waking up 3 hours earlier is so not ideal.
Yay, would love to 🙂 Oh man, yeah. God help us if we ever get flown to Europe or something.
Actually, you’d be fine in Europe (currently, your 8am is 1pm in the UK, so you could have a really long lie in 😀 ), but I think the flights from North America to Europe are often overnight, which is less than ideal. The problem is flying UK-> Canada/USA. I left the UK at 9am and landed in Texas at around midday local time after a 9 hour flight (times probably aren’t quite right, but they give a general idea)
I’ve gone back and forth between Britain & Texas so many times that I adjust to the six-hour difference so fast, but the two-hour change between Texas and California nearly kills me every time. I don’t know if that’s a personal quirk or if it’s a common thing that bigger time differences are easier to overcome. (And summer time. That hour change takes a week for me to adjust to in both directions.)
Texas wasn’t my final stop (5 hour layover, another 3 hour flight, then 3 hours driving before I reached my final destination) so I don’t know how well I would have adjusted to just UK->Texas. I struggle with short jumps as well though 🙂
Goodness gracious. Long-haul travel is the worst. Why don’t we have teleporters yet? It’s the 21st century, for heaven’s sake.
