Las Vegas / Philadelphia / Wilmington & Dover, DE
Well, the day has finally arrived! We’ll see if all of the months of planning and preparation pay off.
We were dropped off at the airport by our friend Joyce. Hopefully she’ll be able to pick us up in 6 or 7 weeks when our travels are over.
We had to pay additional fees for having overweight baggage. The limit is 50 pounds per bags with Southwest. Also, Pat’s Swiss army knife was confiscated by TSA. Not a pretty sight.
We were able to connect with good friends, Bob & Stephanie Lerch, for dinner in Wilmington, DE at Ruby Tuesdays. Seven years of catching up to do.
We are now in our hotel room at Dover AFB and will check with the terminal tomorrow about getting a flight to Germany.
Hopefully I can figure out how to connect to the Intranet via wireless connection. It works at home but not on the road yet.
