All packed and ready to go. My brother is staying at our place while we are gone, so no worries there.
While Viking included and arranged flights to south Florida it did not seem to make sense to try and fly to Miami and then bus to Fort Lauderdale during Christmas week. Probably 5-6 hours of travel that we can do driving in 3 hours.
Today we picked up our one way rental car to drive to Fort Lauderdale.
Tomorrow the adventure starts.
