I'm leaving on a jetplane

traveling in todays post 9/11 society can be a daunting task, travel is not made easier for someone traveling with MS but I intend on making it tolerable. Last December I went on a roadtrip with my wife, it was comfortable enough, a day and a half to Dayton Ohio with a stop-over in Atlanta. I'm going on the same trip with my wife but this time by plane, aside from the usual headaches with TSA and baggage we also have the extra hurdle of a layover in New Jersey. In a normal situation I'd be excited to be back in NJ but I'm not returning for a "real" visit, just a 2 1/2 hour tease. But back to my point, As I travel with my wife tomorrow I plan on traveling as smooth as possible with my cane & walker. The key point as far as I'm concerned is just taking the time to TAKE MY TIME. that includes  not trying to be the first off of the plane (my first time on a plane with MS). While I have my NJ layover I have about 2 hours to take my time getting off of the plane, using a restroom and grabbing a bite if having MS has taught me anything is that, I have all of the time in the world, I shouldn't be in a hurry to get anywhere.
