Ecuador 2014 – Flying to Guayaquil
Early Sunday morning (9/28/14) I picked up Brian Seabaug at the Burns and McDonnell office in Kansas City, Missouri. Brian had just returned from Saudi Arabia two days prior and was not feeling well. When we arrived at KCI Airport Brian was feeling progressively worse and began having major flu symptoms. So the first order of business was to cancel his flight and unfortunately he had to take a cab home from the airport. A couple days later Jim Allen reported that Brian had to be admitted to the hospital due to his situation.
Needless to say I was traveling on my own to Ecuador, which I had never done in the past. The flights all went as scheduled and I was very relieved to see my friends Maritza Yanez, George Wertz and Wilson Villarreal Izquierdo (our new friend from Peru).
Chimborazo here I come!
