The Adventure Begins!
Dropped our guys safely at the airport yesterday afternoon at about 4:45. Hit rush hour traffic so I was glad I had begged asked Timothy to come along. The trip home was stop and go for the 1st hour. Joseph called at 7:30 PM to say they were in Chicago and everything was going fine. Stephen was already complaining about his travel companions and claiming he was going to fatten up at the Dunkin Donuts they had discovered at O'hare. Typical. From the pictures Joseph emailed from his phone, I'm guessing the night got a little long.
Killing time at 11PM
The "hat" is a deflated soccer ball
11 hrs in the airport....1 hour of sleep
They flew out of O'hare at 7:10 this morning and should be in Ft. Lauderdale around 11AM (EST). There they will meet up with the group from MI and (if everything goes according to plan) finally reach Port au Prince at 2:40 this afternoon. I'll keep you posted if I hear anything else from them, although they will lose cell phone service and Internet access once they reach Haiti. Debbi is the exception. She is in the "know" when it comes to these things and will post on the Hands for Haiti blog as soon as she can.
