Multi-mode transportation from A to B

We did almost everything short of riding a bicycle in the snow in our journey from Halifax to Bradford for the first leg of the Big Ass Christmas Tour 2008:

- car to Halifax Stanfield International Airport
- shuttle bus from Park n Fly to the terminal
- various escalators and elevators to our flight
- airplane to Toronto City Centre Airport (YTZ) via Porter -- first time on Porter, and nothing bad to say about 'em. Good (free) food, good (free) drinks, decent service, civilized travel
- ferry to the mainland
- shuttle bus to the Royal York Hotel
- crossed the street to Union Station to take the subway train to Finch
- picked up by Barb & Wendall in a car for the final leg to Bradford

Trains, planes, automobiles, and a ferry boat to boot. All without any extreme delays from snowstorms that smacked Ontario and Nova Scotia.

Tonight, it's dinner with both sets of parents for the first time ever. I expect everyone will get along.
