Off to Virginia

Checking the Engines

Just a quick update before we head to the airport.

We are safely ensconced in the driveway of our friends' house in Killeen, Texas. They made us a nice barbecue chicken dinner last night, and the 9 year old has been thoroughly instructed in the care and feeding of the pets. Our friend Don has been briefed on the bus and what might stop working in the sub-freezing nights to come, and he's got my cell number just in case.

In a few minutes we will head off to the Killeen airport, AKA Gray Army Air Field, for our flight to DC, which connects through Atlanta. I expect over the next few days that we will be too busy to blog.

I also must apologize for several unanswered comments here as well as my back log of unanswered email. It has been a whirlwind few days and I am very behind. I will try to catch up a little on the plane, but mostly it will have to wait until we return. I'm not going to declare email bankruptcy just yet, but for sure I will have to declare Twitter and Facebook bankruptcy when I get back.

  1. I used to go to Killeen (Ft. Hood) when I worked for the Army (as a civilian engineer) - about the last time was maybe 10 yrs ago - end of Jan. - woke up to the results of freezing rain - I didn't even think it got that cold in Texas. The Killeen airport closed and we ended up driving to Austin to fly out.
