Dayton/FDIM 2010 – Day 1

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet. Wednesday was travel day and while the actual travel was uneventful, I had a pretty rough time. Dave W8NF, Carl WS7L, and I got to the airport on time (up at 0300, not fun), our flight took off on time, we made our connecting flight just fine (even though they switched the gate at the last minute), and we made it to Dayton pretty much exactly as expected. The problem was that I got airsickness in the middle of our first flight. This is the first time it’s ever happened to me, and I think it’s because the cabin temperature was so warm. It really didn’t help that the air blower was blowing out hot air most of the time. Fortunately, no vomiting this time, but I was pretty queasy the entire remainder of the day.

We made it to the home of our gracious hosts Tom N8ZM and Barb and got settled in just fine. Things didn’t work out so that I was able to make it in for the Wednesday FDIM check-in, but that was OK with me since I was feeling so rotten. After sleeping off the sickness and getting a really nice shower, I’m all ready to go for the first real day of festivities. Let the fun and games begin!
