Dave and Dianna's Grand Adventure

This is the start of our grand adventure. I'll improve the formatting as we go along.

02/22/07 - Went over to Lonnie and Marilyn's last night. Superb lanai at their place. Lonnie turned me on to a running book – The Chi of Running. I'm going to try to get it on Amazon or Ebay when we get home. Also, went to dinner last night at Winjammers... no relation to the cruise line. Huge variety of chow though. More later.

03/24/07 - Finally ordered The Chi of Running. Got it on Amazon for $2.95 US. Shipping cost more than the book - $4.95 US. Still, eight bucks for the whole thing! I'm looking forward to getting it in my grubby little paws.

03/25/07 - Found a cool website for the Corozal area of Belize - http://corozal.com. It has tons of photos of the local area and what's been going on in the town. Really typical small-town stuff. But that's cool. We'll be heading there soon.
We're flying down on 03/13/07. Actually, we'll be leaving on the 12th... We take the Capitol Aeroporter shuttle from Olympia to Seatac the evening of the 12th - and get there at about 10:45 pm. 

Our flight doesn't leave till 6:00 am on the 13th, but since it's considered an international flight, we have to be at Seatac NLT 3:00 am. Which means that we had to catch the shuttle at 1:45 am, for $105 US.
I changed our reservations for the shuttle yesterday to have us go up at 10:45. Since, It's doubtful that we would be sleeping much prior to the 1:45 departure anyway, changing it to 10:45 saved $50. All we have to do is find a comfy nook at the airport for a few hours.. Yawn!

Say, while I think of it, my last day at work is 03/30/07. I'm retiring. Sort of anti-climatic to write it - just doesn't have that zing!
