July 4, 1998

We had family, friends, and supporters meet us at the airport from 8am until 10am.. It was really a wonderful sendoff and gave us the emotional boost that we needed right before we departed. We left Lebanon and headed toward Charleston, WV for fuel. Due to weather, we had to divert to Huntington, WV and then to Dunkirk, New York. At 7:30pm, we finally made it to Glens Falls, New York and checked into the Queensbury Hotel. Tired, WET,(running around in the rain after dark looking for tie down ropes for Mary Beth), and hungry... Nikki was helping me with this update but I just looked over at her bed and saw her mouth hanging open... She's no help tonight.. Tomorrow, we will meet David Diamonds 3rd grade class from Lake Luzerne, New York. They will give us Little Buddy (stuffed bear) so that she can go on the flight with us.. Then we go on to Bangor, Maine for the ferry tanks... Thanks to everyone who came out to the airport and supported us today...
