We have successfully completed the first 1 hour and 4 minutes of the 29 hours of flying time it will take us to get to Ukarumpa. We spent all day yesterday packing and re-packing our action packers with the result being three action packers at the maximum weight of 50.9 lbs. and one large duffle bag weighing in at 50.9 lbs plus our carry on luggage. We got to bed around midnight last night and at 3:30 am this morning we jumped out of bed and hurried to the airport for our 6:00 am flight out of Billings. Praise the Lord the security barely blinked at all of our action packers! Our next flight will take us to Singapore through Seattle, and Tokyo. If all goes as planned we should be in Singapore in around 20 hours.
Jacob and Kim with their action packers maxed out...there are three of them plus Jacob's large backpack....and numerous carry-ons: computer, camera gear, guitar, etc..
