Today we leave on vacation. So grab a seat and come along as we start our journey that will take us -- quite a while.
Everything is packed. We rise before sunrise, meet up with our friends and head to the airport.
After arriving at the airport, we unload the luggaae and head to the ticket counter to check in and have our luggage weighed.
Whew . . . . it passed.
Our luggage is now on its way. Too bad if I've forgotten anything. The next time we meet up with our luggage, there won't be a Wal-Mart handy!
Next we head to security check; wait in line; take off our shoes; get out our little bags with liquids. We've made it through security and now it's time for breakfast. We usually get something at Sonic. After breakfast, we walk to our gate -- and wait.
Our first flight leaves at 6:40 a.m. and lands in Memphis, TN. From there we head to Detroit, MI. Our next flight leaves at 6:00 p.m. and it's an overnight flight to a destination that I will reveal -- in tomorrow's post.
Get some rest because tomorrow we will be busy. We will have some traveling to do by train and taxi, then train, then taxi again -- all with our luggage in tow. (I really don't like that part.)
