Made the Frankfurt-Portland Flight

Barely... Again. Last year it was the crazy drive from Essen to Franfurt with five of us in a small car with bags stacked to our noses. This year it was a delayed flight into Frankfurt followed by the usual passport control and secondary screening. In the end we are all on board and safely on our way. One interesting catch was that we were only allowed a single carry-on for the first leg, forcing Carey and Linda to check two extra bags. Marty has settled right in and is explaining our purpose for being here and giving all sorts of details to a very attentive German woman sitting next to him.
