On the road again....
I'm laying on a hotel floor just outside if San Francisco International Airport waiting to go back to the USO lounge once they boot us out of here. We have a 22 hour layover, and we arrived here at 12am this morning.
Headed to Sydney tonight to start our trek. Hopefully it all goes well. We spent the last 7 days getting our house up on the market for my upcoming PCS. Had no time to pack like we usually do, so we threw stuff in the suitcases and ran to the airport. In the process I had a bottle of liquid detergent break open in my bag, so I'm now doing laundry instead of exploring San Fran.
This trip has nowhere to go but up.
As promised, I will be posting photos throughout the trip. Also, I'm using my crackberry along the way so I can check our house on the market as well as write while traveling. This is my first post using my handheld, and I'm hoping it works.
I'm taking requests for photos if anyone wants to see anything specific in Australia. Just leave a comment and I'll see what I can photograph.
Until then, wish me luck braving the untamed wild and unfriendly San Fran. It has been at least 10 yrs since I was last here and and it was rough then.

Wow. Like you said, I don't think your trip can go anywhere but up. Hang in there!
Your "crackberry" post turned out just fine.
I look forward to your pictures. Have a safe trip.
Thanks RWA (aka R-Dub). At this point I have very little to complain about. Just whining, which gets worse when we went a week sleeping about 2-3 hrs per night prior to this. Once we sleep on the 14 hour flight over the Pacfic w should all be back to normal.
Then again, normal is a stretch for my family.
From all I read about San Fran, you might be just as glad you spent your time doing laundry... ;-)1:47 PM

Tony, Tony, Tony! You're from the biggest hippie town, ever. Laundry detergent? Where's the patchouli oil? Then you wouldn't HAVE to do any laundry at all! The entire vacation!
Glad you're back, btw...
