Travel Update - Part III

 Chad & Nedim hit a practice field near Muncie this morning but I have had no updates or Facebook status reports from him lately.

Hartley and Pat sent some pictures as they toured Mt Rushmore today. Only one email as I suspect they 1) could'nt find internet access or 2) found a wine store :-)
Hartley's adventures!

Mark and Robyn picked me up this morning and after saying good bye to Kelly we headed to the airport for the flight to YYZ (Toronto). The plane is posting a 20 minute delay so our connection time to Indianapolis is minimized a bit... shouldn’t be a problem.

Bags and excess baggage ( 2 plane boxes) were processed quickly by the friendly Air Canada Express staff at the Victoria airport.  Mark’s bag weighed in at 49.2 lbs... just under the limit LOL
Our flight left 20 minutes late due headwinds on the inbound flight... but that meant tail winds for us! We landed in Toronto and within 35 minutes had grabbed our baggage, clear customs redeposited baggage and arrived at the plane. That is pretty good for YYZ. Our planes arrived along with the bags but we sat for another 30 minutes waiting for other connecting passengers.
Mark composes his blog.

The flight down was uneventful (the best kind!) and I watched Mark type out his blog report on the way. We quickly grabbed our gear and headed to the rental car facility at the Indianapolis airport to pick up our van.

In the new terminal in Indianapolis

After loading up we headed around the ring road and connected to HWY 69 northbound to Muncie. An hour quickly past before we arrived at our hotel. Boxes and planes unloaded we hit the local Walmart for supplies. I’ll update tomorrow with new details

Walmart supply run complete!

Dez and Nell also arrived in Muncie today and we will get together with them in the AM. That’s it for now. Off to bed.
