I got up at 4:30 am to head to the airport for a show in Dallas. My flight was at 7:21 which was nicer than the normal 6:00 am flights. I flew United through Denver and finally after a little delay got to Dallas around 4:45 pm on Wednesday.
While I was in Denver, I found out that the client didn't have a hotel room for me on Wednesday night. Rick, who was in Stockholm Sweden on a site survey found that out and was nice enough to book a room for me at the Westin which is about 2 miles from the airport. I met Dave Cole for a nice dinner at the Westin and then got a good nights sleep in a Westin Heavenly Bed.
This morning I checked out of the Westin at 10:00 am and went over to the Grand Hyatt DFW to help Dave get the client all set up with Internet and Printing.
A little Lunch and then I hung out in my hotel room for the afternoon. The hotel is right in the Airport Terminal, so it is not like there is anything to do or anywhere to go. Around 4:00 pm we met for some dinner. I had a little bit of sushi and then it was about 5:30 so we went to the meeting room to get set up.
We were just about ready to tape all of our cables down... everything was working... and then in came the client. They had some changes and finally decided to change the room set up from a U-shaped set up to round tables.

We had to rip up everything that we had already laid down and tested, wait for the hotel to reset the room, and then put it all back together. It really wasn't too bad and the local AV company people had pretty good attitudes about the whole thing.

Finally finished around 9:00 pm and now I am going to get a good nights rest. A 5:30 am wake up call will start the day tomorrow and we will work till about 3:30 or so. Then do it all again on Saturday.

Actually, overnight guests of the Grand Hyatt DFW can get access into the secured side of the terminal. And Terminal D is quite nice with several shops and food options. All you have to do is head to the concierge desk and a DPS officer will get you a certificate to pass through security.
