Looks like we may be leaving

I have been cooped up in this airport terminal for a week, waiting out the volcano eruption. What a hassle. Sleeping on a cot, no hot water in the shower. The army brings in food in plastic tubs for us to eat. Really awful.

But the rumor is that we can fly tomorrow (Friday 23April). The Army tries to keep such things as schedules, confidential, but you cannot keep a civilian airline flight a secret, when it is published all over the internet.

I am glad to be getting out of here. But I am apprehensive on this new job. I do not know anything at all about balloons, I never saw one up close before two weeks ago. Now I will have to drive them. I guess it will all come clear to me in the field.

This schedule is going to be rough. We have to work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. I would like to have some time off, I need it.
