Flag of Brazil  , State of Bahia,
Sunday, March 21, 2010

So first, off, the awesome news....The equipment here is started up and running well, and it was started up right on schedule too!  So now we're going to be leaving Brazil.  Jacqui and I are leaving at almost the same time, but she's flying through JFK and I'm flying through ATL.  Jacqui's gonna head back up to her parent's house while I go on the next few jobs.  I'm gonna stop at the office in ATL, then drive on to my parent's house in Huntsville, AL.  I've got a get together planned with some friends, a big pot of momma's dip, and however much beer we need.  Oh, and I'm planning to run errands while in HSV too...  Man I miss everybody.

Then the next day its back over ATL to catch a flight to Sydney.  And luckily for me, I was able to snag an upgrade to the front of the plane where they've got LIE-FLAT SEATS!!  I promise to take pictures of the awesomeness.  I'll only be in Australia for 4 days, then I've gotta head back through ATL on my way to Brazil again (as long as we actually get the contract for the repair work).  And I've got myself an upgrade on the Brazil flight also! 

All in all, I'm supposed to be getting about 50,000 miles in the space of about a week.  And since I'm already at 70,000 medallion miles so far this year, I should make Diamond level before April is finished!

Then the plan is to head south (North Carolina) to start looking at what town we might like to move to.  Then head through ATL for some meetings and finally get back over to Huntsville with Jacqui this time.  Then who knows where we'll end up next!

So pretty much every day this last week and a half, there have been cows in the road....and they don't like to move.  It's almost like they've got a death wish.  And since I've been leaving the mill late all those days (except yesterday and today), it's been pitch black out for the drive.  See the pictures of the cows?  Yeah, I came to a dead stop, got out my camera, turned it on, and was taking a picture before they looked up and saw that I was there.  Then the ones closest to me jumped away because they were started....  What can I say, at least they're good eatin!
