So tomorrow morning we are going to get up very early and leave out by 8:00 a.m. to get Alex to the Charlotte airport. His flight
leaves at 11:33 a.m. and he will arrive in Denver early tomorrow afternoon. After Alex is safely through security, we will hang out for about two hours, and pick Gaylon up at 12:06 p.m.! I am obviously not much of a travel agent, or I would have managed to get Gaylon here in time to see Alex before he heads off into the wilds of Colorado!! I’m afraid my brain has headed south without me.
Anyway, my niece, Kristi, is going to pick him up at the Denver airport, and he will stay with them until Jess joins them.
So, I am putting in an official prayer request: please pray for Alex as he hikes the Colorado Trail. They will officially head out on Saturday, June 12, and are planning to reach Durango by July 22. I gave Alex a bit of room for error, so his flight doesn’t actually leave until July 27. That way, if it takes a couple of days more to reach Durango, it will be okay. They will take a bus from Durango back to Denver. He will get to hang out in Denver with my niece, Kristi, and her family in the meantime. Hopefully he’ll get to hang out some with my nephew, Joseph, and his family, as well.
If anybody wants to pray for me, that would be nice, too. I am trying not to stress out too much, but I can’t help but be a little worried about sending my baby boy off into the wilderness!
