So this afternoon, Robin and Tim will drive me to Atlanta where I will check in to the Hilton at the airport. Wendy's flight gets in from Dallas at 12:30AM, then we plan to be back at the airport at 6:00AM. Flight leaves at 8:30, then we will have an 11 hour day in the air heading to Anchorage. We're so excited!
