Only 500 miles this time. Tennessee. Last night Will told us that he would be flying to Tennessee for a business meeting next week.
Two years ago, he told us that he was going to fly to California for training. For a Week. Will had never flown on a commercial jet. And he went alone. (https://annkilter.com/2012/08/20/to-california-and-back-again/). That round trip involved six different planes, a train, and a shuttle bus. I found out later that he made all the reservations himself. I have never flown in a jet either, so I was of little help.
It’s been two years since his last flight. This time, i tell myself I’ll worry less. This time, he’ll be more comfortable, having been through it once. This time, there are no layovers. He’ll be renting a car this time. (Maybe that will convince him to get a newer car 😉 ). I’ll still be praying. 🙂

I found out that he will have a traveling companion. The last time my grown son with autism went alone.
I would find Tennessee much less daunting than California. It’s exciting that he’s having all these experiences. I’m thankful for the earlier success to build on!
