Well, we made it home, had to go to Seattle via Rota Spain but changed my Frontier tickets from Philli for a small fee and we arrived in the Springs Tues night. I have to say the flight was really cool it was a C-17 with some Army cargo that we dropped off in KY and then made our way to McCord AFB in Tacoma WA. We slept most of the way on the floor of the C-17 with many blankets and pillows the Load Master gave us, I will have to say if you have a tablet or kindle get the Monopoly game app its good for hours of amusement. The lawn is out of control but I have the rest of the week off, in keeping with my needing a vacation from my vacation. I am already planning an around the world trip for 2014, I have seen some post of retirees going around the planet taking hops and I plan to do the same, I am going to budget 30 days in the spring of 2014 and I am sure it will be the coolest thing I've done to date. If you look at the Pics you'll see why I enjoy taking AF planes, the crew was awesome and the terminal at Rota packed us snacks of Juice boxes, crackers, cheese and candy bars, thanks Navy! Until next time!
