Closer, but no cigar. I’m staying at Yokota AB in Japan. There are flights from here to Kadena AB…the one today was cancelled…which I’ve heard goes to Osan more frequently. Well, a call to Kadena revealed they have nothing scheduled to Osan through Wednesday, while here at Yokota there is a flight to Osan ON wednesday with very few seats. I even called Osan and the guy there said they get just as many flights in from Yokota as Kadena. I guess, well, I just don’t know what I’ll do. A flight could just pop up at either place without notice, and I don’t want to be at the wrong place.
We’re making the best of it. Yesterday was a big Airshow/Festival here at the base, so we enjoyed the hot weather, planes, and a hotdog. Met up with a couple guys from Bryan’s squadron who were here with the A-10s; told them to say hi for me since they’ll see him before I do. Not sure what we’ll do for the next couple days; I’m really hoping for a rogue Osan flight to appear and whisk me home.
We are, however, very jetlagged. Yesterday we tried to stay awake all day, but fell asleep for a nap around 3pm after walking back from the Festival. I woke up this morning at 2am bright eyed and bushy tailed; Zoe woke an hour later. It’s now 9am and she’s down for her afternoon nap. We already ate lunch a while ago.
