Jul 5, 2015 - Lynchberg

We are now in the foothill of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Lynchburg, VA. This stop is going to be part work/part fun. Miss Molly is going to the beauty parlor here while we take the time to do LOTS of wash at the Laundromat where we were definitely in the minority. We did drive around Lynchburg and as will most of the other stops found a strong construction presence particularly at Universities and College. Here Liberty University is expanding as you will see in the photos. Knowing that Dennis enjoys history and battlefields, I opted to...

Feb 27, 2015 - The end of packing

Bags all packed, school issues all taken care of, Alice at her mothers... I left the VW in case Alice wanted to drive it but ran into a problem in that the truck went backwards on the ice when I tried to drive off. Looks like it will be there until I get back. But all ready for the meeting tomorrow (I hope).

Feb 26, 2015 - Snow day

The Thursday before we leave and a snow storm - three to four inches and below and near freezing temperatures. Schools closed. In Jolivert the low temperature this coming week will be about 70. More packing to do and other arrangements. Weather still looking good for Roanoke on Sunday. Finally got around to stuffing the bags. Only a few last minute things (like netbook) to pack and will be ready to go.

Feb 24, 2015 - Snow is on the way

All my personal things are in a big pile on the floor. Everything I will need for the eight days I have to take in carry-on. The 100 pounds I can carry of checked luggage is all supplies (mostly medical) for the clinic. We spent several days with "packing parties" where we consolidated drugs from their original containers into as few containers stuffed as full as possible. We leave in four days from Roanoke Airport and the weather is calling for snow tomorrow and ice pellets on Sunday morning. Our flight is at 7:30 AM so there is a little...

Sep 14, 2014 - A Cold Cough

There was a time this morning that I thought to myself that we were not going to make it home. We had driven about 400 miles yesterday and spent the night at a Walmart Parking Lot in PA. Our plan, get up by 6am and be on the road by 7am and be home by by 2pm. We woke up in the cold with the heater off. It was 52 degF outside and very foggy. As soon as we left the Walmart Parking Lot, there was this big hill we had to climb. The Dutch Star would only go 25mph and transmission alarms sounding, semi behinds blowing his horn….It was worrisome....

Aug 12, 2014 - There and back again

Boarded our flight in Munich at about 12:30 with a whole bunch of children. We also had seats in the middle of the row - it was an uncomfortable flight. Two young kids (2 and 4 or so) in front of us were constantly moving about, one even hitting the man in from of him on the head with a stuffed toy. Both fighting and squabbling the whole time. The mother (I guess) sat on the end and did little about any of it. There were also several babies who seemed to cry sequentially rather than simultaneously. Then there was the woman who kept her...

Jul 26, 2014 - Ready to go!

Been a busy morning with a trip to the market, then three other stores for last minute stuff. Back to the house and packed up - and the cab has been called. To the airport in 45 minutes - then 24 hours or so into Copenhagen... But first Charlotte and Munich.

Jun 24, 2014 - Boston and back

After a too short night we got up at 3:30 AM caught the completely full airport shuttle at 4:20. To the airport and it took a while to get our boarding passes but we finally did - then in security we both got expedited security - kept on shoes and stuff. Nice. To the boarding area and boarded fairly quickly. The two hour flight to Charlotte was quite easy with no issues. I was sitting next to a 12 year old who was heading to St. Thomas to meet relatives. Talkative at times and quite at other times. To Charlotte and the plane to Lynchburg -...

Jun 10, 2014 - The Day Before

In ten hours the taxi will arrive to take us to the airport. Bags are packed and arrangements made. First excitement - other than finding we had to switch hotels due to a 6.5 earthquake last month - is that we cannot check in online. So now we have to try to figure out what is going on at 4:00 AM.

Jan 13, 2014 - All the way home

The flight was delayed about 40 minutes because the plane was there but the crew was coming in on another flight which was delayed. We left about 30 minutes late and the flight was quite bumpy most of the way. We seemed to slow down as we approached the airport but landed without any problems. It took them about ten minutes to locate steps so we could get off the plane though - and when we did it was indeed wet and cold. Luggage took another 20 minutes to arrive but I found the car without any problems, drove back to the house to flowers,...

All the paperwork is finally in hand. Tickets printed out. Car filled with gas. Pretty much everything I need is packed - even found an old wrist watch to take - though I might get a tan line :( Flight leaves Roanoke at 7:15 AM so need to be on the road about 5:00 AM... in the morning... Sigh. But on the bright side... Forest, VA - High 40 - low - 2 Playa del Carman, Mexico - High 75 - low 68 Belize City, Belize - High 79 - low 68 Antigua, Guatemala - High 75 - low 54 But rainy in all three.
