Bound for San Diego
So I'm trying to figure out when I need to leave for the airport. Since I have to be screened individually, this can take some time if the screeners are busy. No need to fear - Tucson International Airport has a website. I found that by going to this site then clicking on the flight departures link, I got a screen of all the departing flights of the time. At first, it sorted by destination, but then I clicked on the departure time, and it sorted that way.
Long story short, the next flight to leave Tucson is about a half hour after mine departs. I think that based on that information (and the odds of the plane being full on a Thursday night) means I can show up about 30-45 minutes before the flight leaves.
To be safe, I will be at the airport with 45 minutes to spare. I have a new book to read to keep me company: Guns, Germs, and Steel. My iPod is also happily charging so I'll be fine I'm stuck sititng around for a while.
