This is how happy we started in our trip.
gate would not open for our shuttle bus. A service crew came by and the solution in the end was for the bus to back up and go out a different exit. This was not really to big of a deal until we realized leaving at one in the morning from Tyler and Jess' house was a waste as our flight was canceled. The solution for that was to transfer our flight to American Airlines for eight in the morning. This was all good until this flight was delayed to 9:30. This would cause us to miss our connection flight from Houston to SJO. What you may not have thought of reading just this little bit is that between each flight reschedule we had to get at the end of the line for either American Airlines of United and wait our turn to have the flight fixed. As you can imagine we were not the only ones with this dilemma. So it was a little stressful and chaotic. Finally we ended up flying Continental to Dallas at 8:15 in the morning.

Finally our flight left from Dallas for San Jose on American. We finally arrived in San Jose around ten pm. Fortunately the Vamos Car rental guy, Alex, was super nice and waited for us even though we were really late at this point as our original schedule had us arrive around noon. Of course this could not go as planned either. When Tyler originally reserved the car he explicitly asked that it be an automatic as not many of the party were comfortable or able to drive a manual. To follow trend from the rest of the trip it was a manual. Because of this I ended up having to be the primary driver. After going through all of the paper work with Alex to rent the car we set out in the Prado for our four hour drive for OSA mountain.
