I got more exercise than I planned on when I realized, just before getting to the terminal, that I'd left the luggage claim tag in the van, so I had to reverse course and repeat the trip to go get it.
There were no Alaska flights in at the time, so retrieving my bag from the luggage office was painless, and I made may way back to the van and left. That extra trip to the terminal, however, pushed me over thirty minutes total stay time, so it cost me an extra $2.
Traffic was heavy but moving on the way back, so I must have missed the worst of it. On the way home, I stopped at the Fremont post office to mail four packages for Emerald City. I wish they'd let us use the automated postal machine for Global Priority Mail. I got to queue for thirty minutes or so, when I could have certainly done the transaction myself in less than five, even though I had four GPM packages to mail.
