Post #295...and I'm leaving on a jet plane
Okay, make that "we're" leaving on a jet plane...tomorrow, actually.
That's right, the whole Dee clan is picking up and heading to points south, in South America that is, for a whole glorious 8 days.
4 days in the mountains (9,000 feet above sea-level, I shit you not), followed by 4 days on the beach. Hello sea-level old friend, we meet again.
I'm hoping that the altitude sickness I had last time we journeyed to this same locale (10! years ago--can't believe it's been that long) does not see fit to strike again.

Hoping like hell we (meaning A and I) survive the 3-hour flight with the girls. Hell, hoping we survive the drive to Miami just to get to the airport. Speaking of which, bet you didn't know that Miami has won the "rudest drivers" distinction the last two years in a row?! Now you do :-)
Wish us luck, we may need it, despite the fact that we have armored ourselves with new toys, snacks, and a portable DVD player and DVDs. Let's hope it's enough.
