Brutality of travel

Just to let you know what it took for me to get from Korea to Oklahoma, I am laying out my travel itinerary.

Saturday May 22
12:00noon 20 minute cab ride from base to Gunsan bus terminal

12:30pm 3 hour bus ride from Gunsan to Seoul bus terminal (which is the size of a smaller airport!)

3:30pm 30 minute cab ride from Seoul bus terminal to Dragon Hill Lodge

Sunday May 23
7:00am wake up .... this would be 5:00pm Saturday evening CDT

8:30am 1 hour bus ride from Dragon Hill Lodge to Seoul Incheon airport.

9:30am check in at the airline, get through security and wait for my 12:10pm flight

12:10pm 3 hour flight to Tokyo

5:00pm 10 hour turbulent flight to Los Angeles (this arrives into Los Angeles at 3:00pm Sunday afternoon PDT)

5:00pm After almost missing my connection in spite of a 2 hour connection time, I make my 3 hour flight to Oklahoma City arriving at 5:40 pm Sunday afternoon.

So after more than 24 hours of traveling I have made it back to the town where I grew up right outside of Oklahoma City. My voice has come and gone several times over this trip.
