Thanks to Harry's 32 years in the Air National Guard and the US Air Force Reserve, once he turned 60 we could travel space-a.  When a US military plane has extra space after filling all its mission requirements, eligible people  "catch a hop".  So on Saturday morning, 20 Aug., we rode the local bus from Almerimar to El Ejido, then the long distance bus to Cadiz, with 2 changes.  Finally, we arrived, but after the last bus for Rota, where the air field is, so we took a taxi for the last leg.  On Sunday we got a ride on a C-17 plane to McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey.  Here Harry is relaxing in his seat, but others were stretched out on the floor having a nice sleep.  It's not BA first class, but we really like it and you can't beat the price!

From McGuire we shared a car with another space-a user to go to Dover Air Force Base, about 3 hours away, for a flight to Charleston, South Carolina.  Space A travelers are  a friendly group who, like cruisers, often step up to help each other.  After a good night's sleep we rented a car in Charleston and arrived in Jacksonville Tuesday afternoon.  It is wonderful to be together with family, so we will be enjoying the easy life here for the next few weeks.
