It’s Friday afternoon and we have an 8:20 am departure from MCI tomorrow morning. The semester is over, so everyone has different activities to complete before leaving for over 2 weeks. Four of us depart this evening so that we have a good night’s rest before tomorrow’s takeoff. Six others are working later tonight and leaving at 4 in the morning from Manhattan to be sure to arrive at around 6:30 at the airport. Will they even go to bed? Everyone else is staying in the KC area for a shorter drive to the airport in the morning. All eighteen of us are looking forward to the exciting trip ahead. Stay tuned for daily updates and photos of our adventure.
