As I suspected, the more you prepare, the less you need it. Despite the two reroutes. And the 15-year old diesel bus that Metro wants to get rid of but they can't afford more new ones.
Note for exMarines: 3052 was my platoon number in boot camp (company M, no less). Further, If you extend the lift on 3052, you can see Golden Footprints stenciled on the ramp.
Anyway, it was a light day. Ran late because of the reroutes, but that's ok. Things were only getting crazy just as I was getting relieved.
And now, food and beer.
