Sleep PlaneAs you know, I am going to Yahoo Search but I think I might be nuts for how I plan on doing it. Here is my schedule, if everything goes according to plan:

  • Got up at 5:30am (EST) today and in office at 6:10am
  • Leave office about 2ish to go to airport
  • Get through security and on Internet at about 4ish
  • Try to do blog research for tomorrow while waiting to board
  • Take off at about 6pm
  • Land in SFO at 9:30pm (12:30 midnight EST)
  • Pick up rental car at SFO at 10pm (1am EST)
  • Arrive with rental car at hotel 11pm (2am EST)
  • Check email at hotel and prep for sleep by 11:30pm (2:30am EST)
  • Set alarm clock to wake at 3:30am (6:30 EST)
  • Work on RB, SER, SEL and so on until 9:30am (12:30 EST)
  • Go to Yahoo
  • Censored
  • Leave Yahoo at about 7pm (10pm EST)
  • Arrive at SJC (closer airport) at 7:30pm (10:30 EST)
  • Get to gate by 8:30pm (11:30 EST)
  • Try to do blog research for tomorrow while waiting to board
  • Take off sometime after 9pm (12 midnight EST)
  • Land in NY at 6am ish EST (if on time)
  • Get out of airport by 6:30am
  • Get to office at 7:30am

Now, if I can sleep on the flight from SJC to NY, then I will be okay. Chances are, I won't be able to sleep. So I figure I will be sleeping about four hours between 5am this morning and 11pm Thursday night.

I did something like this once before, when I went to SES Sweden in 2004.

But when all is said and done, I should have reached my "Elite Status" with Continental airlines - making it all worth while.
