NOW Who's the Troopiest Trooper?

It's true, getting on a plane at 10:30pm, flying five and a half hours, getting off the plane for an hour and then getting on another plane for another five hours (plus some waiting time for delayed passengers) was difficult for me and the kids. Dave on the other hand had a little bit of a different route (if you don't already know why he flew separately, don't ask. it's complicated). We had everything planned, so that his flight would get in a half an hour after ours, and we could still catch the same ride home. Of course, everything doesn't always go as planned, does it? His flight was delayed three hours which made him miss his flight in Los Angeles, so he was on standby and then he wasn't and then another flight was delayed and eventually he ended up staying the night in Denver and I had to go back Monday to pick him up at the airport in the afternoon - in all, 21 hours after he was originally supposed to get in. Now that's a Troopy Trooper!
