We are in New Orleans at the airport. We got up at 6am got ready and packed then headed to Mother’s for breakfast where we met Ivy and Simon. Would you believe there was a humongous line at 7am?! So, on Friday, Randy took the car in to be shipped, then returned WAAAAAY too quick. The port was closed. Federal holiday. It never occured to either of us. So, we called the travel office, they were closed too but we managed to reach the after hours help desk. We thought, no problem, we’ll just leave on Monday, that’s when our ‘rotator’ to Germany leaves anyway. No seats to be had, not even one. If we can’t make it by Monday, we don’t even know when the next rotator leaves so we had to make a decision. We needed someone with a military ID who could ship our car for us, we found someone who is driving from Navarre Monday morning to do this. Jim, you are a saint we are forever indebted to you. My brother dictated a special power of attorney for me over the phone with about 10 minutes to spare before Fedex Kinkos closed for the night AND the next TWO days! We then found a notary willing to come out on the 4th of July for a ‘small’ fee. Please pray this goes off without a hitch – the front desk has our key, we paid for an extra day of parking, the paperwork to ship the car is in the glove box. It has to work, because we will be in Baltimore!
