I made the first page, wow! I like all of the chapters you have listed.

I like flying out of small airports, it's so easy.

Great score on the rental car. Bob figures it would just as long to park a car, then catch the parking lot shuttle as it would to ride a Disney bus. I don't see it because we go when the crowds are very low!

Can I just start by saying I'm so glad you started this? Because I am so glad you started this!
Heyyyy what a great travel day! So smooth. Other than Denny's cold! Yikes, hope that didn't last long!
My reading material

Oooohh how did you like? Was this your first time reading it? I loved it, but I won't say much more in case you haven't finished yet.

Your flight crew sound awesome! Pick the kid with the most potential, too funny. A great arrival day, can't wait to hear the rest!

I'm here!!

I love flying out of new airports. I find that to be kind of exciting. Unless the airport sucks....then I'm not so thrilled about it.

I'm glad you guys got an awesome flight crew. I love it when they make jokes and try to make it fun. And scoring a whole soda? Cha!

I'm in and loving it so far. We used to fly AirTran and loved it but since we are in SWA's hub (DFW) then AirTran isn't allowed to fly anymore. Makes us sad - but we can't wait for SWA to be able to fly straight through to Orlando!

I like that line too. It reminds me of one time when I was flying down to Orlando and there was a family that was surprising there kids about where they were going (WDW) and they asked the flight to not say that we were heading to Orlando. So the flight attended then came on and said "despite what the next announcement says we will be going to our scheduled stop" They then went on to welcome us on board our flight to Regina via Montreal. The Captain even went along with it when he made his announcement about landing in Orlando and said "as you can see we have not gone to Regina via Montreal but are in beautiful sunny Orlando."
Heading West for DPN WestFest 2010 - TR underway F & F at the DLR! Fun and planing for DPN WestFest 2011

Great start!

I'm glad you could get your brother and his family on the train. I can't even imagine the turmoil...

I love regional airports! So easy! Sometimes leads to confusion, though. We were coming back from a trip to Washington DC and scanning the boards we couldn't find our flight to Boston. "Duh, We're flying to Manchester" my son piped up, rolling his eyes.

The window displays at ABE were awesome.

Love the picture of the tunnel in the faux monorail!
