Ok, this is the post you’ve all been waiting for.
Well so we left our home at 0530 a.m. local time, to the airport because it was SO snowy, we couldn’t drive more than 80km / hour!
So when we arrived (in time) I looked for Yorick and went to the check in. We could board the plane at about 1000 a.m., which was good, but because of the snow we only took off at 1200 p.m. They had to defrost the plane, and the trucks which do that were very busy. But after all, no problems, we took off.
When we were crossing over Ireland the pilot asked if there was a doctor on board (trouble!), after flew out of Ireland, and continued for about 30 minutes, we had to turn back because the situation was that bad.
Because the plane was filled up to the top with kerosine we landed too hard, so they had to check the landing gear (time is really adding up now!)
After that we took off again, and continued our flight to Newark. Since the plain couldn’t fly at full speed over New York we could watch the cars from up high.
It was really like GTA in real life.
After we landed we had to go through border control (easy) with our passports, we had to took another flight because we missed our connection.
Fortunately it was free, we flew to Kansas City for about 4 hours, and we landed at 1200 a.m. (which is midnight). So that is where Joe Forman picked us up with his brother’s Pontiac Grand Prix 3.8 V6 Supercharged (!!!!). (Thanks Joe!). What a car!!
We had to drove about 1 hour and 20 minutes to his home and the roads are HUGE here, so are the trucks.
He was driving about 75 miles an hour (maximum on the highway here is 70 miles), and since there are no road lights, you can’t see who’s driving in front. So were driving in lane 2, and on lane 1 there was a police car (we didn’t notice it until very close).
Joe had to drive slower, because of the cops. Fortunately I saw it, otherwise he would be fined! (Maybe I should have kept my mouth shut, than I would have seen a pull-over 😛 ).
So we arrived at his home at 0140 a.m. (add 7 hours for Belgium time). We went to sleep at 0400 a.m.
We woke up at 1000 p.m., then Joe prepared some eggs for us.
Then we took off to the driving licence office, to get some info, and after that he guided us around in the university.
In the afternoon we went to Walmart (we held a gun!) and Best Buy!
In Walmart we looked like small kids in a toy store. You can’t imagine how big everything is. The shampoo cans are HUGE.
So this is it for today, I’ll keep you up to date!!
