Hi Gary!
Thanks for getting back to me.  Hope you had a nice holiday.  Is it just you?  My bike is a two-seater,  so I don’t think I can fit anymore people.  And, since your flight gets in around lunch time,  I’ll probably want to stop at Burger King.  I hope that’s okay!  Should I just wait at baggage claim?  I can make a sign that says, “Gary”.  Or, “GARY!”  I have some extra poster board and some markers.  Hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks,
RP

Thanks Randy,

Just myself and I have just one carry on. What’s the color and brand of your car? What’s your phone number? Do you live in Kearney? Just make sure you are going to Kearney airport from omaha airport that afternoon. I am flexible. Thanks!

Hi there Gary,
Like I said,  my bike is a two-seater so I’m glad it’s just you.  It’s bright red,  but there’s a little rusting underneath the handlebars and just above the tires.  The carry-on should be fine…we can just toss it in the basket.  What do you like to eat at Burger King?  Maybe I should stop beforehand, and pick up lunch for both of us to save some time.  I usually get a #2 value meal,  but once in a while, I’ll go with a #6.

P.S.  Don’t forget to bundle up!

Thanks,
RP
