4am came pretty early this morning.

We are eastbound, heading toward the rising sun. Next stop, Montreal. The photos are a little blurry, but that's realistic as I feel a little blurry this early anyway.

I took a little video of us climbing through a thin layer of cloud to emerge on top. The sound is staticky, so it can be turned off.

The vampire within me cringes, but the rest of me welcomes the morning light and the surge of energy it provides.

We fly over a solid undercast layer, which has always reminded me of an endless ocean.

Descent time comes and I push the nose forward, toward the airport and our waiting hotel rooms.

We lucked out at the fbo. Check out our sweet courtesy car.

It has push-button start, which is really simple. So naturally it took us 3 tries to get it to fire up. Good thing we don't have to operate complicated machinery very often :)

We drove at high speed to the hotel, where I am writing this before I start on my daily emailing, scheduling, etc. No rest for the wicked!

I have a business card from the general manager of that FBO on my coffee table. He has the same initials as but fewer heads than Zaphod Beeblebrox.

I never got to drive the car.
