No sleep!

So, tomorrow I will potentially be up for 15 (regular day) + 4 (travel to Newark) + 8 (flights) + 12 (10am->bed) = 39 hours. I'm pretty sure that math adds up once you figure the time change and such. Yikes. This assumes I will not be able to sleep on our flights (there are 2 of them. I will be in Minneapolis for about 1hr between flights).

Soooooo... POLL!

5-hour Energy. It works pretty well, just make sure you have some bread/crackers to nosh on if your stomach gets a little sad.

Does it give you more than 5 hours of Energy? I think I would need to drink 4 of them. :-P

What is this stomach sadness you speak of?

Sometimes if I forget to eat after drinking some, my stomach gets a little upset around hour 6. Remember, you're not looking for 20 hours of wakefulness, just 4 (or so) more than you usually have.

I agree if you have to do something, do what xoder said. Red Bull causes you to crash... and generally does not play nice with the gut.

I think by the time I would crash, it would be bed time! The last time I had red bull (college) I was up for 36 hours straight and then only had to sleep for like 10 after that. Not sure if my body would have the same YAY reaction to red bull as it did 6 years ago, though. :-P

haha. You're now a working woman on the 9-5! (approximately anyway) instead of a college kid. ::shrug:: Things'll be probably different, but hard to say, everyone's different.

I just today woke up feeling like I wanted to be awake! It took nearly a week. Kind of sad. :-p

I think you should just let yourself fall asleep on those flights. Wouldn't a Red Bull make you crash after you came off the high of it? I don't know much about Red Bull.

I agree - I tend to stay away from caffeine in general (caffeine free for five years!) but I know Red Bull is bad news.

If you can sleep on the plane, go for it! I stayed awake the entire flight back from Buenos Aires (11 hours oh god whyyyyy) and I wish I'd slept.

I tend not to really be able to sleep on planes, I but I will sure as heck try!

Try a neck pillow. Believe it or not, they do make things a little more comfortable*!


*(This is not meant to imply that an airplane seat can be comfortable).

I will wave in your general direction! We will be booking it to our next flight. :-P

I vote for the Red Bull. It's not that bad.

Instead of fighting it, can you let yourself sleep on the plane?

I'm trying to remember the name of this stuff I took once to knock me out on a plane.

Oh yeah, vodka.






I'm just kidding. It was something else, started with an M...I'll have to think about it.
