I was excited to see Austin and flew in the evening so I could get a fresh start in the morning. I got my bags checked easily but I wish there were more baggage checkers in Newark in person to help. I like to talk to real people. The security was okay. I went through with no problem. I stopped in a bar in the airport and ordered a small meal with a soda. They were pissed I ordered only a soda and didn’t even give it to me a first. I was in economy so the flight was a little tight. The flight itself was smooth. When we landed I was able to find my way around Austin airport fairly easily. I did like the big guitars in the Austin station and photographed them. The car rentals don’t stay open very late however and I didn’t have a reservation. For what Avis advertises online they slammed me with a big bill. It was over $300 for three days. They advertise around $20 a day for the car I got and it didn’t have navigation. Overall a great trip.
