The trip begins

My vacation schedule was a little light last year, so I’ve decided to start this year’s travel season with a trip to Florida to see the last launch of the space shuttle Endeavor before it is retired.

Today started at 5 am so I could shower, pack, and walk the dog. After a brisk walk to the train station, I was actually early for Caltrain, so I caught an earlier train.

Sparkles is not having as much luck getting a rental car to the airport. He is coming in from New England. Mountain Man and the kids are coming from the Rockies. Today is like our own version of the amazing race as half a million people, including The President and his family, descend upon Cape Canaveral.

Wish us luck, and hope for good launching weather!
