Update in plans

So, we finally got our "staging kits" in the mail (after a minor hassle with mine being sent to my mom's physical address, not her mailing address even though it was supposed to go to Luke's parent's address to begin with...just another bump in the long, long road of making this whole thing happen). Anyway, we found out several things...one, that we won't be in Tegucigalpa for the first 3 months, we'll be in Santa Lucia instead which is a town not far to the northeast of the capital. We also found out some more details about our trip...we leave Cedar Rapids, IA on Monday, Feb. 12 at 7 am and head to D.C. to have general Peace Corps orientation in the afternoon and the following day. They put us up in a hotel and pay for our food so it's not so bad. However, the night of the 13th at 2:30 in the morning we have to check out of our hotel to leave for the airport to catch our flight to Tegucigalpa at 6 am on Valentine's day. I think our only stop is in Miami. We're in Honduras by noonish. That should be one interesting night/day!

Wow guys, that's so exciting! So will your mailing address be the same as the one you have posted previously?

We're so excited for you...are you sure we can't come along in your luggage or something?

Good job selling the truck Luke! It's better than sending her to the dog food factory...so to speak.

Take care,

Jarod & Dory &...
