2001 Classic Trip Journal


27 July 2001

Return home - friday - nice flight home today, only 3 hours of sleep before a 4:30 wakeup call and then we pack the bus.  great stay in denmark, there is a sadness in the air as the kids know the tour is winding down.  even though we can not wait to get home to see our families, leaving a great experience is very difficult.  the flight home is long, 10 hours, but time enough for players to have jerseys signed, exchange email addresses, and share some tour memories.  we arrive to an excited crowd at dfw and we have some tears of joy as well as sadness.  i read a poem that i wrote on the plane and put some finality to the tour.  in closing, i can tell how great the tour was by how exhausted i am. full of memories and experiences that will stay with me a long time.  hope all enjoyed themselves and can not wait to do it again.

See you at the far post,
