So I was making my way up from KSEA to PANC, and well after I had gotten departure taken care of and had climbed up to cruise altitude. I had about three hours to spare, so what do I decide to do? I take a nap, as I can feel the stress I’m in from things outside of sim. The nap feels great, I wake up momentarily and check my flight. Still have two hours to go. So I go back to my bed, and close my eyes once again. After a dream I can’t remember, I woke up. I walk over to my phone and seen what had happen. I was about 50 miles south of Ted Stevens heading southbound. I glanced over to my “Distance to Ete” on my taskbar, and sure enough, I saw those two dreaded lines.
And with only 4% of fuel left, I headed westbound, alerted the passengers over the PA system to assure them no one had been poisoned in the cockpit, and diverted the aircraft to Kodiak. (PADQ). Now I wait. I wait for the fuel trucks to help me with fuel, and I shall begin the taxi shortly. What am I going to tell my boss? :(
