|My first night's lodging|
Well, that was the plan. Our plane was to leave yesterday at 11:20 and was delayed. And delayed for six hours before the flight was finally canceled. Instead of going to Ontario, we ended up flying BACK to Seattle and then routed on a flight to Santa Ana Airport (better known as the John Wayne Airport) in Orange County. We had to change our rental car from one airport to another and drive to Elsinore. Fortunately it is only about an hour's trip, so we arrived here last night at midnight.
After crashing, I got a few hours of sleep before waking at my usual time of 5:00am. I cannot seem to sleep later than 6:00, and I didn't even manage that. It's now 6:15 in the morning and I'm going to head down to the lobby for a quick cup of coffee before I take a shower. Frankie is still sleeping soundly in the bed next to me. We are supposed to be at the Drop Zone at 8:00am to start the festivities. Some people who were on our original flight ended up not getting a flight to anywhere, so I guess I should count my blessings. We are now in Elsinore, even with all the difficulties.
I'll be posting again tomorrow morning, after a day of skydiving. The weather looks pretty fantastic, clear and cold. Until tomorrow at this time, wish us all luck! Today is a day of getting our skills up to speed and tomorrow morning begins the record attempts. I'll be taking pictures!
