Yes tully, the schools are Piro and Carbonera,

A GTG in ALberta? Would enjoy meeting Percy but not as exotic as CR.

Hey Dyer--thanks! You enjoy New Orleans--one of my favorite places. This your first time since the flooding?

Thanks for the kind words janienicole--we will indeed do a "salud!" for you! Keep your mind on that goal of yours!

We were supposed to fly out today, but weather in DFW kept us here in OKC. Until Saturday! Oh well, more time with the granddaughters. We'll get there eventually. . glad we weren't going for a long weekend!

And good luck with the puppy. They are always so cute, but think we'll stay dogless at this point.

shillmac bummer about your flight, I guess leaving tomorrow isn't too bad but I know you were ready to get down there and have some relax time.

rivet thanks for the info on the school, when we pass Carbonera I know it's just about that time to BdC so know it well. Will drop off stuff on our way in.

wicked good to hear from you, will be looking forward to meeting you and mrs wicked Maybe you will be arriving same time/flight as Rivet?

Wish we could have everyone that wants to go join us.

Wow Shillmac, that's quite a delay... We are travelling through DFW on Monday ( yeah!) so will keep our fingers crossed.

Safe travels everyone and see you at the GTG !

Yeah, I think the problem was the OKC-DFW leg. OKC is 2.5 hours from DFW and we thought about driving, but we are ticketed back to OKC, so what would we have done with our car down there? We went through all the options, but there were a ton of passengers trying to get out of OKC, so that had filled up next day flights. Oh well, we've had fun here. This is the first time ever for us to have run into such a travel glitch. Just so glad we didn't HAVE to be there!

See you soon!

Not sure if I've seen anyone going those dates Ladena...I'll be heading to CR on the 19th, and then to BDC on the 25th. -- Have a great trip!

Be safe and see you soon everyone!

Just watching it rain in South Dakota, dreaming about what it is like in CR today! Tomorrow will be our first time in Louisiana - and I am anxious to see that part of the country. I think I am prepared for the heat and humidity! Hope all are traveling safely this week.

Dyer,

I live in Louisiana, so brace yourself for some hot weather, supposed to be 97 on Thursday. Our heat index is above 100 every day - way too early for this!

Hope you have a great time in the Big Easy and some fantastic meals - hard not to eat well with so many wonderful restaurants! We just celebrated DH's BD with the best charbroiled oysters I've ever had at Dragos.

Forgot to add that I hope everyone has a great time at the GTG! Wish I was going, but am thinking about an anniversary trip to BdC for next year. Can't do it all, darn it!

Happy travels to all.

colibri, us too - it was 100 degrees here yesterday. I think we're going to have to go to CR just to cool off!

VG - I keep thinking about cool cloud forests, hummingbirds and quetzals at Savegre - it is what is keeping me going through this heat and drought!!

Don't think you will cool off in CR,it was sooo d**mn hot, there were 2 hikes that just about did us in. Arenal for me and the Saino for my hubby at BdC. Hot, sweating way too much, extreme humidity and no breeze. Whew!
