Orlando, Florida

Flew from Portland via Newark.

Upon landing in Florida, we discovered that an airport employee had taken several items out of our bags. Mickey lost a carabiner, his new carabiner knife (to replace his other new carabiner knife that was stolen by the airlines between Sydney and PDX last year), his Leatherman tool, his never-before-worn cycling gloves. They stole my new gloves, also (of course I had just bought the best ones I’ve ever had), a new innertube, and my Topeak tool set. All together about $300 worth of very important equipment.

Erin and Sam picked us up and fed us dinner at their house. “Watched” the Super Bowl. Pitt 21, Seattle 10.
