What one calls a journey to find the "Holy Grail". Taking time to search, study, and be aware of one's situational awareness while the chances of actually finding a 'whale' are remote. Enjoy the journey and live.

Day 2 - Traveling to Arkansas
Well, day two has come early. We got up at 4:30 (ugh) to head down to the coffee shop (had to have some java) around 5:30. Needed that fix to get our engines running. Met some really nice folks at the Marriott Atlanta Airport. (Jeff and Tracy) Jeff greeted us with a smile and was upbeat. We requested a favor of Jeff to take our picture for prosperity. (Do not adjust your TV set, it is the picture!) Well, he proceeded with enthusiasm, but I must say that Jeff may need to keep his day job. We had our picture taken with Jeff as a rememberance of the ambassador sending us to our next leg of the journey. Made it to the airport at 6:30 for an 8:30 departure. The flight was overbooked, so we attempted to "sell" our seats and take a later flight to capitalize on a free trip for a future journey. But to no avail; the overbooking was resolved and we caught the flight on schedule. Wheels in the well at 8:52 and we are on our way. (P.S., don't sit in row 9 or your get the full effect of the landing gear operations)
