I saw these several times from the buses, but was never quick enough to remember to pull the camera out. I am glad you got a shot of them.

I am here! Some of those exits between us and Greeneville are a little scary. I have never flown out of Greeneville before. I fly a lot for business, but very little for pleasure, so really don't shop around airports/fares. Great start!!!!!

I had only been over to the carriage house to drop a package off for MeMom before this trip. I had a huge learning curve as you will see.

Glad you got off to a rather unremarkable start...not a bad thing, at all! I recently found out I'm going back in April and staying at SSR, so I'm looking forward to your pictures.
The flight was unremarkable but getting there sure wasn't. I guess I had beginners luck in Oct because it was so easy.

Great start. I can't wait to see Saratoga Springs. We have never stayed there.
Chris will lead the way some and you will see that is not all bad this time.

I have some pictures but not as exhaustive as the All stars was last time.

The last trip with Chris was Sept '10 It just seems recent since I took so long with that epic TR.

I am glad you are laughing. I am laughing now but man was I stressed. I think I had beginners luck the first time I went to Greenville in Oct. I guess I figured out I get so stressed trying to "please" that I screw up even more trying to make it perfect.

Greenvile is about 2 hours away but all hwy so an easy drive unless you need gas.
I found the Walmart and if you use a gift card or walmart card ( I use the gift card) I get 3 cents off a gallon but they were running a promotion of 10 cents off a gallon. Already about 15 - 18 cents cheaper than NC + and extra 10 cents - I wanted to find that gas station. It is actually a Murphy gas but in the Walmart parking lot area.

Breakfast sounds horrible. Thank goodness it was a short flight.

I never managed to get a picture of the entrance to OKW the whole time I was there.

Yeah - SSR! Hope you liked it!
The fountains I guess are for the waiting area which pre 9-11 were probably used more since they are outside security.

That wrap was horrible. So much so I tasted it all day. But I kept washing it down with something yummy.
That little bag of peanuts was not holding. The fruit chews held me a bit. I downed a pretty big bag in abput 5 minutes, while they were moving the plane to th other gate.

[QUOTE=MeMom;43676080]This is why I love to arrive at MCO in the daytime. Love that sun shining through! The atmosphere is not nearly as exciting on the nighttime arrivals.

Sun to arrive and dark to leave. That's how I like it.
Now with a 2 hours drive home how about dusk to leave?

I saw it on the way in. By the time we were on the way out I had the camera out and ready.

It was light out so not so scary but ceratinly SC interesting. Greenville being a SW provider and just started running flights to MCO last March. It is nice and small so no Nathans or Cinnabon to eat. If I had that scenario happened on the way to the Charlotte Airport, we still would have been able to feed the bear properly.

I'll be there from President's Day through the end of that week, so I'm glad to hear that its going to be open then. Have you heard anything about the Great Goofini opening then, too? I'd heard they're going to open at the same time.

The article made it sound that maybe the whole Storybook Circus area will open for Presidents weekend. that would be neat.

Glad you made it over.
I fly SW from Raleigh sometimes, it's about 2 hours for me to get there though! How far is Raleigh from you?
