In a few hours I’ll be headed to Hobby once again to this time take a short flight inside the Lone Star State to Dallas.
Nope, it’s not for the Black Trans Advocacy Conference, that’s going to take place April 24-30. But if you’re thinking about going, may wish to get registered for BTAC 2017 and get your room at the Dallas Marriott Quorum by the Galleria in Addison,
I’m heading up to that end of Texas a few weeks early because I’m going to be taking part in the Transgender Leadership Institute sponsored by Equality Texas and Freedom For All Americans that starts tomorrow.
Normally I’d take Megabus for an instate trip, but I wasn’t feeling the four hour ride up to Dallas and back on Sunday, having to do light rail up to DFW, and then taking the hotel shuttle. Just easier and more convenient for me to fly into DFW. Even better, the flight is only a little over an hour from Houston to DFW.
Flying into DFW means I’m not on Southwest. Their hub there is at Love Field, so I’m on American this time. Assuming my 12;27 PM CST flight leaves here on time I’m scheduled to get there at 1:39 PM, so by the time I get my bags and to the shuttle, it should be time for me to check into my room at the DoubleTree.
I’m finished packing, ready to get this travel day started get to and in my hotel room there for a short nap before the networking mixer that starts at 5 PM, And yep, Dallas is corporate HQ for the Southland Corporation, the parent company of 7 Eleven
Wonder if there’s a 7 Eleven close to the hotel?
