Well, I decided to go on an excursion this past weekend all beginning with a notion that I wanted to surprised my lovely sweetheart in the city of Cuernavaca in the state of Merelos just one and half hours south of Meixco City. The whole notion was originated by spontaneity like most of my "less than 24-hour excursions." (refer back to London)
Of course, I had to do this all in the middle of a full four day trip followed by two days off then back to work for another four day trip. In between this all is where I was to take a flight to Daytona Beach, move out, drive back to Atlanta, take an early flight to Mexico City, somehow get to Cuernavaca, drive back up to Mexico City at 3:45 in the morning, make a flight back to Atlanta which connects in Orlando, take the shuttle back to my car, get dressed then head back out for work.
It all began like this...
"Hey dood, I'm going back to Daytona to vacate the master suite so that I could rent the entire house to students." -me
"I could help you out..." -Kurt
Well that's when we made the plans to fly down, rent a one way SUV pack all my stuff in and drive back to Atlanta. Kurt and I could moved an array of affections that I've collected since I first moved there in 2005, loaded up the 2008 Ford Explorer from Avis Rental Car then headed out. We stopped by our old flight school, CAPT, and caught up with some instructors and students and also found one of our favorite ground / flight instructors, Cary Green, at his own facility called Avia Aero Services. It was great reminiscing about all the times that we had and learning about a few of our other colleagues and just getting reacquainted. I do miss the kind of educational, promoting, environment that we had at CAPT.
We drove back making minimal amount of stops which included eating at Woody's BBQ, getting Starbucks' Java Chip Fraps with Red Velvet Cake and fueling up. We made it back to Atlanta around 12:00AM, upacked and drove back to the airport to drop off our rental. I got home around 3:00AM due to van time confusion which forced us to wait 30 minutes but needless to say, I was tired when I got home...wake up time for Mexico, 6:00AM. Thanks for coming along Kurt and helping out.
