Hawk Nation,

It’s almost here. One more day before we take off for Australia. I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I am almost packed; the bad news is that I am almost packed. My family is packed, so I am definitely behind. No matter what, I will be ready for the trip. The team had a really good practice today and I met with the men’s basketball staff to talk about the state of the program and the preparation for the Australia trip.

Tomorrow, Coach Gallagher and I will have an early morning meeting to discuss the renovations we are planning for the men’s basketball locker room, which we hope to have ready for the beginning of the 2014-2015 season. We will load the bus at 12:30 p.m. and leave campus at 12:45 p.m. to head to JFK Airport. Our plane is scheduled to take off at 6:45 p.m. and will head to LAX.  

After we land in LAX, the long flight to the Sydney will take off at 11:50 p.m. (PST). We will have plenty time on this flight to watch movies, read books, sleep, or whatever people do when they are on a plane for 15 hours. I am just hoping they have some cool movies, so I can watch them to pass the time.  My two little girls, Gianna (6) and Alexa (9), have already loaded up their electronic devices for the trip, but as you might be able to tell from my previous lack of preparation, I am still behind.

Tonight, I will take care of all of the things I need to travel and be ready to embark on a Hawkventure tomorrow. The Hawks are a bus ride, a plane ride, a layover, and another (long) plane ride from landing in Australia. The next time I talk to you all will be from Down Under.
Thanks for hanging out with us and we’ll talk soon. Wish us safe travels. Let’s Travel Hawks!!!  Hawk Nation Domination.
