Coolest of beans! Do you know about how many miles you ended up going? Did you land near any town or landmark? Inquiring minds want to know!

Gorgeous. But, man, I always forget how flat that part of the world is.

Honestly, it was pretty awesome. My kid was funny about it all, saying "It looks cooler than it is", but I think that's 13-year-old cool speaking as much as anything.
