Ryan, Megan, and Alex's Dallas Itinerary
Saturday, April 6, 2013 - Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Howdy! Let me start by saying that I'm not really sure that we should be going on this trip. ((What??)) True. Here's the scoop: We booked this trip way back in September during a sale. That's all well and good, but ever since then, there have been little signs that make this a bad time to travel. For Megan, it means missing work during a time when she really shouldn't be on vacation - a lot of people are leaving her company because her contract expires in a couple months, and she needs to cover several areas. For Alex, his class picture day is on Tuesday, and there are no make-up sessions this time around. For me, I'm missing several important project and all hands meetings. And for the trip, we're missing the opening of the George Bush Library and Museum, which is scheduled for May 1 (that's the only presidential library we haven't been to). We've still got a couple hours left to cancel, but I doubt that will happen. The good news? It's tornado season! And Alex will be visiting state number 42: Arkansas! Here we go!

Well, thanks to the Wright Amendment, we've got a long, non-nonstop flight to Dallas today [1]. We'll be stopping by Houston on the way there. We won't be on the road until after 2pm, so we'll need to figure out what to do. It's the second day of baseball at home for the Texas Rangers [2], which could be fun, but I'm thinking that might get sold out. The next stop would be to the Fort Worth Stockyards [3], although I don't think we'll be staying up late enough to watch a rodeo. From there, it's off to our hotel for the night [4].

Where you at?? We are never 100% on time to our destinations, so we've taken all the guesswork out of figuring out where we are by broadcasting our GPS location. You'll need to manually refresh this page to see our latest movements, but so long as we get cell phone signal, you'll be able to see where we are!
