Everything is working out GREAT!!!

I am in Kuwait and unless something changes I will be at the Atlanta airport very early Saturday morning.

I have a rental car reserved so it should work out. Its the best option because my tags are expired. Unless something goes wrong I should be home in plenty of time for the game Saturday. Probably between 12 and 2 pm. This will probably be the last time I write unless something changes. I will see you soon!

So you find out tomorrow?

Are you going to call or tell me on here? I have to work and go to school tomorrow but Jen will be here all day after she gets out of school if you want to call.

I think renting a car is probably your best option. If you get into a time crunch, daddy is the last person you will want to wait on. You will miss the game for sure.. Daddy wants you to know that he will be more than happy to pick you up though. Keep us updated!

Hey Blake!!!! GET THIS!!!!!

First off, I haven't even thought about it. I'm more than likely going to just rent a car. It doesn't cost that much and it will solve everything. I have to wait until I get my times to find out for sure. Thats probably what will happen.

But get this, I just checked, if Clemson wins this weekend, the ACC championship game is on December 1st. I WILL BE HOME!!!!! I only got to see the Fla State game. Wow!

Yeah and to boot Boston College is not looking too good...

I will be coming into either Greenville or Columbia. I will get into Atlanta first so.... If my flight ends up on coming in on Saturday to Atlanta early and my flight to Greenville or Columbia is not until that night. I am gonna see if somebody can come get me in Atlanta. Its only about a 2 and a half hour drive and I can always drive back. Of course so I can make the game and it will also be just as easy and safer driving to Atlanta during the day as it would driving to and from Greenville or Columbia at night.

I will know everything on the 15th, times and all. I will call and let you guys know for sure. I can't say for certain it will be Saturday, could be Sunday. But its looking right now like Saturday.

Good win today!

Tiger's are in control of their own destiny. I'm thinking they will play for the ACC. Just a hunch..

Any idea of which airport you will arrive at bro? One week left!

Ah, they will get better....

You guys are gonna have a couple of rebuilding years. By that I mean a couple with the better players. Not just since day one.

Clemson has a good shot. Thats all I'll say. This year can still be great or awful.

I am going to start moving back the day after tomorrow. I have my fingers crossed to fly in on the morning of the 17th (In time for the game). But nothing is for sure on the exact date. Only for sure I am coming.
