After flying all night from Ramstein to Dover, we woke up on the C-5 and realized that we gained 6 hours due to the time difference. We landed at 1AM Dover time.
We have met an older couple (Ray and Delores Leidrich) at Ramstein who took the same flight as us. Their car was at Dover AFB and even though it was 2AM, they drove us to the base hotel so we can get some sleep. They decided to stay there also since they had a four hour drive to their home.
As soon as we got to our room, Mike took a shower and I took a hot bath to warm up. It felt so good to get into bed and be warm. We only slept about 4 hours and were up. But the day caught up with us and we were ready for naps at 5PM. We basically slept about 12 hours and hopefully got caught up with our sleep.
We made phone calls to everyone and let them know that we were back in the States. It was good to talk to everyone. We’ll be home Wednesday night, Aug. 2nd.
