Day one... just getting there is an adventure!
06.08.2010 - 07.08.2010
Day One of our adventure.
We get to Newburgh for our flight to find out that our flight was canceled! (see the picture of our mascot looking at the red canceled sign in the airport) The airline booked us a flight out of Albany and put us in a limo up to Albany. Ugh! Another 2 hour drive, added on to an already very long travel day.
Our limo driver, Dominic, was very nice. He spent the day driving people in a funeral and then got recruited to be a pall barer for a man he did not even know! He said the coffin was so heavy and the family was just sitting there watching and not helping! His back was a mess. Then we got stuck in traffic and JUST made the flight by cutting people off in line at the security check in.
So we make it to Chicago, and our flight gets delayed for two hours! Which means when we get to Sacramento our car rental place will be closed (they close at mid-night!)
But, on the up side... there was a cool light show and music between the C terminal and the B terminal (see the pictures)
We ate a very yummy dinner at Chilli's at the terminal while we were waiting.
Finally got to our hotel at 1:30 am California time.... 4:30 am NY time. WOW! Are we tried!!
