It is 3:17 a.m., and we're almost off.
Despite an emergency visit to a dentist with Twin A late last night, and the subsequent two measly hours of sleep, we (Trevor and I) somehow managed to hear the alarm this morning at 2:50 a.m., hehe. The boys are still sleeping while we do some last minute packing and bring the car 'round.
Alex has been cleared to go on the trip, but requires liquid medication that needs to be refrigerated!!!! YES!!!! Start praying now, please, for decent attendents at airport security, and for tolerance and patience on my part, so that I don't LOSE it on anyone when we have to start explaining our reams of troublesome luggage (we are not checking any bags, so we need to get through US security with some fairly strange items, including now a bottle of liquids - meds - and ice packs to keep it cool)!
With any luck, sleep with find us on one of the two plane trips this today, or at worst, the 2-hour truck ride through the mountains at the other end (though I'd hate to miss that first glimpse of our home country from the next five days).
Until Pt II, signing off, tired but excited....
