I'm Baaack!!

It's been a while, but I've returned from Disney in one piece, which I hope the same for the TDK riders as I've hear it has been a challenging week. Any way I will post more on Disney later as I'm still to tired to make this to long I will give a brief summary of our trip back, THE TRIP FROM HELL!!

We left Disney at 12:10 P.M. eastern time and should have been home and in bed by 10:30 or 11:00 P.M. central time, NOT. The trip from Orlando to Dallas was not a problem, everything on time and in order that is when everything went down hill.

We arrived in Dallas on time and were supposed to leave Dallas for Omaha at 5:30 P.M. and arrive in Omaha about 7:30 P.M. Well we were delayed until 6:40 P.M. for some reason but got in the air about 6:50 or so. We got in made right? NOT. We got to Omaha on time but T-storms were raging through out the area. We circled Omaha for 45 minutes and they decided to re-route us to Kansas City. We got to Kansas City took on fuel and headed back to Omaha, as the T-storms were supposed to be gone. Where do these guys get their weather from, anyone who has lived in the Midwest knows when a large line of T-storms sets up across the entire Midwest knows they are there for quite a while.

Any way off to Omaha we were by means of flying around Wichita, KS and trying to circle around the storms. It was the scariest plane ride I've ever been on. Up, down, side to side it all sucked. We hit ground it Omaha about 11:30 or so and me and my bro in law head to get the cars while our kids and Mrs. pickup up the luggage. No problem right? NOT!

I get to the Prius and the car is DEAD!! This is an electric car if you don't know so jumping it is a little more tricky. So we set out to jump an electric car in pouring rain standing in about an inch and 1/2 of rain water. I was a little nervous. We got the car started and finally headed home, we pulled in the garage about 3:10 A.M. and by the time we got the kiddos in bed and bags out of the car I hit the bed about 4:00 A.M. Needless to say the 7:00 A.M. alarm for work came to soon.

We are home, we are tired, but we had a great time I will post pictures summary of the trip hopefully this weekend.

BUMMER about the trip home. After a vacation sometmes you get to a point when you just want to get home and with all you went through I am sure it was frustrating! I can't wait to hear the report! I hope Disney treated you well!

I hate turbulence, especially at night during a thunderstorm! Are you ready for a bike ride? I will be once the wedding is over and the company leaves!
