Well, we're in PA after the first leg of our trip. What an ordeal. I hate flying, really. It takes too long, it's too cramped, and it smells weird! There were 2 legs to our trip, the first being a flight from Alaska to Minnesota which took about 5 hours. I offered to let Tony sit next to the window because he would be driving once we reached our destination and I wanted him to be rested for that. I got maybe an hour of sleep. Our flight left at 11:40 pm on Tuesday and arrived in Minneapolis at about 8:00 am local time. We got something to eat and waited for our next flight, which was a 2 hour trip to Pittsburgh and we arrived at about 1:30 pm local time.
After renting a car we headed out for something to eat. We found a Bob Evans restaurant and had a good lunch, then headed to Tony Sr's house. He was very happy to see us. We spent the rest of the day and evening with him and went to bed fairly early after a long day of travel.
By the way, it's hot. I really don't miss the heat.
