Tonight the Honda Diaries begin as Ruthanne and Chay boarded a plane for Dallas. We left Tuck & Debbie’s wedding reception early and I drove as quickly as I could to SFO. We parked the car at our friends Michelle and John (who are getting married next Saturday in Monterey) and John was kind enough to shuttle us to the airport. After an uneventful flight, we arrived in Dallas on time just before midnight. Sarah’s brother Dave picked us up at the airport when we emerged into the hot Dallas night and drove us the 37 miles to his house. All of the furniture had been packed up so I had an empty bedroom to sleep the night away and prepare for the 2600-mile trek that we would begin the next morning.
Ruthanne “forgot” to take Lyman’s swiss army knife out of her purse before going through security so things started out a little more slowly than anticipated. But then Ruthanne does fit the terrorist profile.
