We were up at O'Dark Hundred, got showered, dressed and out the door at 5 a.m. as planned for the trip to the airport. Arrived at the airport at 6:30 where they promptly confiscated our breakfast yogurt because it was over the 3 oz limit and we might use it to blow up the plane with a mass quantity of blueberries. Oh well . . .

Arrived in Seattle around 8:30 a.m. local time and had about an hour to kill before the next flight. Arrived in Far West See City 40 minutes before I had to meet with the Bishop, where we dashed through the airport to the rental car agency where I made it through the process in record time and out the door to the car where we cruised through See City traffic and made it to the Bishop's office only ten minutes late. And then we had a lovely chat with the Bishop, picking up some details about the diocese in general and a little about the church.

From there it was the four hour drive to Far West Parish town. We knew we weren't in our soon-to-be-former home town anymore when we looked around for a bite to eat and, within walking distance of our hotel, found a Burger King, Wendy's, Dairy Queen, Carl's Jr., Denny's, a Mexican restaurant, two local restaurants, and a local sports Bar & Grill (no minors allowed).

Yep . . . this is not our small town in Montana. And now, after a full day of travel and 16 hours of awake, I am done, done, done.

We'll further explore the town tomorrow day and then meet with the committee tomorrow evening -- after a very good night's sleep.
