After about 45 minutes, the long awaited C-17 flew into view, circled to land and arrived with a fresh load of winter personnel and pick us up. It landed, used most of the 10,000' runway to get stopped and taxied right up to where we were waiting. Engines still running we were cleared on once all the folks being delivered and picked up were out of the plane.

Today I am relaxing. Walking around the Botanical Gardens to continue enjoying the smells and lovely weather. Its in the 60's and sunny--a lovely summer day and near end to my journey home. Now off to Boise it is tomorrow. Well tomorrow and the next day as it is around a 26 hr adventure. Can't wait, wish I could just click my heels 3 times....
Talk to everyone soon. Hope all is well and can't wait to share the stories. Cheers!
