Waking up at 0430 in the morning is not something I would normally do, but I woke up before my alarm today. I slept well, but I was ready to go. Our flight left Tampa at 0727, so we were on a tight schedule. Unfortunately, the TSA and the restaurant in the terminal were not on the same time frame as us. We ended up having to check an extra bag, move some stuff around, and I ended up eating my bacon and eggs off of a tray. Given how sleepy I was, my plan was to just take a nap after eating, but I stumbled into a conversation with the guy sitting next to me. He was visiting D.C. for the first time, so he asked for some things to see. I tried to give him some good recommendations, and we ended up talking for the whole two hours.
After we landed, Mikey Figueroa picked us up and shuttled us up to Frederick. The drive was great for catching up. Now, Hope and I are just relaxing in the hotel before all of the wedding craziness starts. We've still got another week before we land in Vietnam, but it feels good to get the first leg started.
