We got up at 6:45am Saturday morning, had a quick breakfast at the hotel, and drove to the car rental dropoff. The shuttle was there waiting (because who else was returning a car that early on Saturday?) and we were at the airport before 8am. We saw an airline captain walking to work, which was awesome.
BTV had an excellent little restaurant called the Skinny Pancake, the kind of place that has a food-sourcing map on the wall. (My hippie heart loves that stuff.) We got coffee and went to go hang out in rocking chairs until our flight.
We boarded a very small plane at 9am and flew to Detroit, then back to Minneapolis, where we had plenty of time left to enjoy the weekend.
