Day one has begun, and I'm still not packed... I just finished posting the initial bits to this little website. You can watch the map and keep track of where we are on a day to day basis. I started in a couple days ahead though. I am getting more excited as the night wears on and I am debating whether or not to go to sleep. We have to leave around 3:30 am - normally my bedtime.
So, I am going to go finish packing and prepare for a day of airports! Our route tomorrow (I mean today...is: Des Moines to Chicago to Washington to Vienna to Cairo.
Mickie bought me a really cool travel pillow, that should help.
