Have a great trip and birthday(Matt). Just found our Mickey head name badges that you made us for the 2010 Dis meet, going to take them this year to see if we can meet any fellow dissers. Will be following your trip on line & will look out for you on the 10th. Thanks for all your help. BTW Stephen will be 15 on the 11th, lots of Dis birthdays this summer.

then another 5 hour wait in the airport.
Then delta to alaska (another full 6 hour flight!! )
by the time they get to the airport in alaska they'll have been traveling for 36 hours, not even counting the time to get to the airport here.

she's renting a car in alaska. she's going to be exhausted, so i told her she could get it the next morning if she's too exhausted to drive. Or alternatively, to pay a taxi to drive in front of her and lead her to the hotel. just so that she doesn't have to think about where she's going.
and she's never driven in the US before, so it's going to be a bit of a challenge for her. Not the side of the road - that's the same as here, but the rules are very different. Like making left turns at traffic lights is completely different there. I've explained it, but if she's very tired, it will be difficult.

but it's a small town, so hopefully it will be ok!!


Wow, that's some journey, makes mine look minute. Were your dd & ds born in America? (just been nosy, with you saying she's not driven in US before). Hope she has a great trip, sounds brilliant.

Hope flights and immigration are all good tomorrow. A bit wet here again this afternoon but hopefully it will all have cleared for your arrival tomorrow. We check out from OKW tomorrow probably just before you arrive but will still be here until August 1st. Will keep an eye open for you and say 'hi' if we spot you.
