To get out of the city for Memorial Day weekend, Albert and I found cheap tickets (~$200/roundtrip) on JetBlue and flew up to Maine to meet up with Will for three days of hiking. It was epic.
Finally on board an hour and a half late JetBlue flight to Portland (Maine) for a weekend of hiking with Albert and Will. Stoked. 10:08 pm: They kicked us off the first plane because of “… maintenance … weather …”. Back to waiting at the gate.
