Day 21-25 – The Journey Home…
Day Twenty One (Mar 8)
Today is lost with air travel on our plane and we make the long journey home. Our flight didn’t leave BA until late in the evening last night, took 12 hours of flight time to Atlanta, Customs to clear, many hours of layover and terminal changes in Atlanta and 5 hours home, baggage to get, lost baggage to check on to no avail, and this day passes.
DAY TWENTY TWO (Mar 9)
Okay, the photos are blurry. They were shot quickly from a moving jet and I was behind the engines!
Home and now for real life. Now we find out that we have 21 days from the date of our loss to file a claim for our luggage. Since we ‘lost’ our luggage in the beginning of the trip, that date is today! So our day is filled with documenting all our lost items and compiling everything. It turns out that the Airlines is declaring our luggage lost for good it seems.
DAY TWENTY THREE (Mar 10)
So claim filed with the Airlines. We’ll see what happens. Now to continue editing the 10,000 photos I took. I’m at about number 2700…….
DAY TWENTY FIVE (Mar 12)
Got a call today from a delivery service informing me they were nearby and had our lost luggage! So wouldn’t you know? Our luggage just showed up full of cold weather gear to go to Antarctica with! Shall we go?
DAY TWENTY SIX (Mar 13)
Just for shits and giggles, we also come home from Antarctica to find our road closed due to a “Catastrophic Slope Failure” about 200 yards north of our house. There is no danger to our house or property but the road will likely be closed for the next year or more. With the reduced traffic, we already have multiple new Red Tail Hawks flying around. Soooo cool !!!
DAY ONE HUNDRED FIFTY (July 15)
Still no resolution from the Airlines. Not surprised! Now, excuse after excuse later, they are demanding all of our receipts. At least they’re supposedly working on it. I wonder how much more time it will take? Because we won’t let this go.
