The flight attendant ushered him down the aisle before the plane left Albany, and said, "Thanks, Thomas" when he asked if he could sit in the empty row behind us.
I thought he looked familiar.
When we got up to deplane in Chicago, I noticed he had a Teton Gravity Research hat on. I showed him my "Change for a nickel?" sticker on my laptop bag and asked if he had change. He gave me a curious look. I explained and asked if he ever read the forums. He said No, he has friends who work for TGR. I said, "Just as well, they're a bunch of animals".
Some chitchat about where we were skiing and we were off.
Guess who gets on the plane in Chicago headed for Jackson? Yep.
I said, "You AGAIN?" heh heh He said "Weren't you on the plane in Albany?"
I said, "Yeah, stop following me!"
I didn't let on that I knew who he was. I figured that he gets enough of that.
However, and the Jackson airport I couldn't stand it anymore. He walked right by us and I stopped him and asked if I could get a picture because no one would believe it. He obliged, graciously, and after........while I was swooning......he told us he'd just been to Stratton and they lost his gear. Snow was good, blah blah, I was barely listening.
Here's a picture of me and Tommy Moe.
