So far the flights are working it fine. 9:00 departure from Savannah, and a 2.5 hour layover in ATL. Surprisingly, I got into the Delta club so I can have a breakfast/lunch before the next wonderful 15 hour flight with all that great airline food. I'll be stuffing everything I can into my backpack. So far this website isn't as intuitive as the previous one, so hopefully I'll learn how to work it as I go.... read more

After yesterday's long grueling ride, today is a tourist day in Atlanta. We both slept well, and since we only had a 30 minute ride to town, there was no reason to wake up particularly early, especially since the free hotel breakfast doesn't begin until 7:00 on the weekends. So with coffee and breakfast, we hit the road about 8:00. We were about 10 minutes from the hotel when I realized that I had forgotten the camera in the room so we had to turn around and go back. No problem, we have plenty of time today. So we're about 10 minutes down the road again and I realize that the TPMS light is on solid on the bike.This means low tire pressure on one of the tires, and when you only have 2, it's kind ... read more

Mrs H and I never turn our nose up at the chance of an adventure providing the adventure does not include bungee jumping, sky diving, scuba diving, pot holing or walking briskly uphill!! For this reason, most of our adventures usually involve a ship of some description. If we had known what was in store for us within the first twenty-four hours of setting off across the Atlantic we may have booked a different route altogether for this was an adventure that if given the choice, we would not have picked even though there was not a bungee rope or an aqualung in sight!! As you've probably guessed, we've set off on another cruise that will see us sail from Fort Lauderdale across the Atlantic calling at Ponta del Garda in the Azores, Lisbon, Bilbao, Le ... read more

Auf gehs Richtung Heimat … 3 Stunden bis Atlanta und von dort über Newark nach München. Circa eine Stunde vor Atlanta bin ich etwas unkonzentriert und fahre über irgendwas drüber, das das Auto ordentlich scheppern lässt … aber zum Glück bliebe alles ganz (genau deshalb bin ich normalerweise lieber am Abflugtag am Ort des Flughafens, man weiß ja nie, was mit einem Auto alles sein kann) und ich komme planmässig am Flughafen an. Auto retour, einchecken, passt alles. Im Flieger sitzt dann ein Musiker/Investmentbanker/was auch immer Pretender neben mir, der mich vollquatscht. Ich konzentriere mich auf meine Aufzeichnungen und irgendwann lässt er von mir los und sucht sich ein anderes Opfer, das mit einem (Blinden-)hund im Flieger ist … In der Lufthansa-Maschine nach München versuche ich dann gleich zu schlafen und lasse das Essen gleich aus. ... read more

Waiting at our gate in Atlanta. Another smooth flight. We again had lots of leg room as we were in the center section of the exit row. 2 meals and a movie and a long nap and it was over. Had to re-tag our checked bag as it was tagged to go to Minneapolis. The lady in Buenos Aires had put the wrong tag on it. She even told us it was going to Minneapolis and when I asked about it she said we would pick it up in Atlanta anyway going through customs. ... read more

Geo: 33.7481, -84.3909Woke up at 6:30, showered and packed my bag. We loaded the kids in the van by 7:00 and my wife had me to the airport by 7:15 for my 8:00am flight. Luckily this is KCI so boarding was a matter of walking through an empty security line and into the boarding area. The two guys checking ids at the head of the security line were joking about seeing the mayor or something. Upon asking, they told me that Chiefs rookie and ProBowler Tyreek Hill had just gone through. Scanning the crowds, I couldn't find him among the sea of white faces. Just as I was about to step forward to board with the other first class passengers, he appeared next to me and I waved him to go before me and followed him ... read more
