Today's chalenge: "How do you get around: car, train, bicycle, plane, feet? Make a photo that represents your mode of transportation today."

How appropriate the challenge was tor today! Our original plan to have Andy and Tina use buddy passes to get to Denver, then all of us hop on the non-stop from Denver to London looked like bad choices given load status on the flights.

Some critical thinking found a route that had us meet them at DIA - and try for a 10 am flight to New Orleans. A 3 hour lay over in NOLA, and then we hoped to get on a 5;20 pm flight to Dulles. Again - luck was on our side. On arrival at Dulles - gate C28, we had to sprint to C4. The 9:50 flight to London was already boarding - and we were hoping again for empty seats.

We got to the gate, saw our names on the board in positions 5-6-7-8, and it said there were 42 seats.....do we dare hope?

After waiting just a few minutes our names were called.....Joe and I assigned 2E and 3E - First Class - Andy and Tina 12E and 13E - Business Class.....London, here we come.
