there was no train station, there was no downtown (the short Ohio report)  
We're in Mason, Ohio ("Ohio's Largest Playground") for the USFOOTY National Championships.

The travel here was non-eventful. Some bumps over the Midwest, but we made it to Atlanta on time, hit the transfer just fine, and landed in Dayton with no issues. The descent into Dayton was interested, as it was all clouds until about 200 feet. We're going through the clouds, accelerating occasionally, landing gear coming down, and can't see a dang thing. We could have been anywhere, and the thought briefly passed through our head if the pilot was perhaps just looking for anything recognizable! But they knew what they were doing, and were landed safe and sound.

It's raining, on and off, and has since we've been here. It will make for some interesting footy tomorrow.

Now I'm tired and it's been a long last few days. Time for a good night's sleep. Tomorrow, two games! Hopefully the action will be updated at the US FOOTY website. I'm on the Golden Gate/Las Vegas team playing in Division Four. Go Roos! (Gambling Roos, perhaps!)

Well, we had some good games and some rough games, and I did manage to get hurt but not severely enough to stop playing. It was a good time!

You went to Dayton by way of Atlanta? That seems....circuitous.

Well, we flew Delta and on Delta everything goes through Atlanta. Which now, we regret, as we're stuck in Ohio for another night due to maintenance issues and issues in Atlanta...

One time my husband was coming home from a business trip by way of Denver. I think the carrier was United. Anyway, they cancelled his flight out of Denver. This was on a Wednesday and they told him the next flight they could put him on was on SATURDAY. Can you believe that? He said it was unacceptable and the flew him to another city in Iowa where he rented a car. Airlines are ridiculous.

That's just kooky. Maybe the entire flight network was out of whack. Or they were totally overloaded...

Sometimes, it makes no sense at all.

We did finally get on a flight this morning (at the crack of crack, as Jay Lake likes to say) and are home. Tired, but home.
