In the morning of 29 April, ten Dutch participants gathered at the meeting point. The group got to know each other a little bit and went to drop off their bags, as check in had, as usual, already been taken care off. At London-Heathrow a Belgian, French and four UK participants were greeted and soon we were on our way to Atlanta. Customs in the Netherlands and UK were very smooth, but the arrival procedure in the US took a while. The car rental guys also took their time. Not an ultimate start of the trip, as we left the airfield over three hours later than planned. Fortunately we had rebooked our first hotel from Savannah to Macon, so we only had one hour to drive instead of four.
