For those Chichesterites among you our fair city may seem a lot quieter from tomorrow morning as two of it's loudest citizens are off to the US of A! Charlotte and I fly out of Gatwick Sunday morning and arrive in Kansas City (God willing) at 17.44 their time tomorrow. We're gonna be like Thelma and Louise but with better hair, no police and no need to drive off a cliff (we hope)! All Brad Pitt look-a-likes welcome...
We'll be spending four-five days in Kansas City catching up with the Greig's (I am sooo excited) and then we're hiring a massive car to drive to Bolder, Colorado. We've been guaranteed snow in Bolder so Charlotte and I may have to attempt snow boarding for the first time in our lives. I am anticipating a lot of bruising on my bottom, but you're only young once!
We're very excited, and a little nervous. We've had a few problems with out flights (ebookers.com have been truly awful) so we'd appreciate your prayers that travel goes smoothly. We'll be catching up with lots of friends so I hope we get time for everything.
We won't be back in the UK until the 23rd so for those of you I won't see before Christmas I wish you all the love and enjoyment the season should bring. I'm not sure how much Internet access I'll get while I'm there but I'll try to write a little something every now and then.
We're taking a special guest on the road with us. His name is Smiles the Reindeer. A poor substitute for the real Smiler but we will be taking pictures of mini Smiles in many weird and wonderful places. I so can't wait to get started!
