Cool Lisa, thanks! When I am in Alaska visiting, I forget about calling my mom here at home to check on her until around 9pm. Well she would kill me then, its midnight here. The first time we took a trip out there, my cellphone rang at 5am in Anchorage. I answered and it was our police department wanting to know if we could come and help with traffic for the Memorial Day Parade (we are police reserves). I told the officer it would take me a while to get there, and when he asked how long, I told him about 8 hours. That is when he realized we were on vacation. That time change can be a killer sometimes.
I remember crossing time zones when I was in the U.S. Navy. It could get annoying as far as our log entries and keeping up with our requirements for sampling the reactor coolant and the steam plant water, which were set to specific time frequencies. I'd always have to pause and think, "has it been 3 or 4 hours since the last sample?"
