I love how once you got wet you just went with it. Best way to deal with this situation.

Only sad thing about this post was the picture of the International Gateway. So close, yet so far.

My day is now complete and I can go to bed with a smile on my face. Thanks for sharing your misery with your usual style and flair!
I don't know which I enjoyed more, JanetMom's joy at your predicament or the predicament itself...

What a great attitude you have even when soaking wet!!
I HATE being wet I would have been grumpy lol.

Sounds like buying the CD was more of a waste. Not really taken advantage of??? If so that's to bad.

Did you get a chance to eat?? I'm always thinking of the food.

Sunny Florida must really be an adjustment for you, but a welcome one!

Major UGH on the soaked tennis shoes though. Yuck.

However, mom of the year should not have to tell a 14 year old to pack a poncho. Either he does, or he doesn't but he is old enough to know what he wants to bring. I assume by the fact the rest of them had them that someone reminded the rest?

14 year old boys are not known for their attention to that kind of detail. At least mine aren't.
Thanks! Not the highest quality photos- the one in France looks like I am melting away- but it was a lot of fun.

The wet sneakers were a flashback to our trip in 2008 during Tropical Storm Faye. It didn't stop raining for 5 days and our shoes never dried out.

You actually pegged it. Nate wouldn't have worn a poncho whether I had reminded him or not.

I should point out that you will soon see in another thread that a certain "Flat" son of mine has his own poncho and is smart enough to know when he needs it.

Me too!

Wet I can handle. Hungry, not so much.

I did get something to eat, but like many experiences on this trip, it was not exactly the way I would have planned it!

I'm not sorry I got the CD, but I do wish the groups would have taken more photos and that my group in particular had taken more than that 1 pose. After I made all the edits and added borders, we ended up with over 200 photos. I'm still making copies of CDs for families upon request.

As a middle school teacher who takes a group of kids on a yearly trip...I LOVE this TR!!! Granted, we don't have as far to travel (7 hours in vans) and we don't have NEARLY as many kids, it still reminds me of our so-planned-yet-so-fun trips!

I'm so glad to hear you are enjoying this. I haven't figured out yet if this is a "how-to" report, a "how-not-to" report or a cautionary tale. Maybe all of the above!

I totally understand the not buying a poncho. I would have hated to buy one knowing my raincoat was in the room. I did the same thing last December and opted to skip the poncho too. Love the country pics

I didn't mind being wet, but there were consequences... I had underpacked for the trip. I had clothes for the travel day tomorrow, but I was actually wearing my sleep shirt, because I ran out of t-shirts.

That was going to be way too wet to sleep in.

Thanks! I figured I would approach the circumstances with humor. Always makes things better.

I'll get a new update up as soon as I can. Hopefully in a day or two.


Hope all my friends in Sandy's path are safe and dry. We lost power from about 4 yesterday afternoon until 10 last night. So glad to be back on the grid!

I am glad I am not too terribly far behind. Can't see pictures now, but I can't wait to see your drenched around the world shots. I can tell by the comments that they are pretty hysterical.

Mother of the year!

Your round the world showcase in a wet clothes cracked me up, as expected. But I really laughed at the group shot with all the pink heads. Nice editing.
