I left Columbia SC at 1:30pm Thursday and have arrived in Japan at 4:30am on Saturday. We had layovers in Atlanta and Las Angeles, but on flying to japan we crossed the international dateline. So we literally flee into the future. The flight was really really long. That was compounded by the fact that I had a middle isle seat in the back of the plane with no leg room do to plane electronics under the seat in front of me. In addition, The armrest fight made me feel like I was part of Bran Regan's standup bit on airplanes. YouTube it. Today we'll try to do some sightseeing on adrenaline before we crash. Then we scheduled to begin working up north. Thanks for all your prayers!
