DAY 02 - Yeeha!!! Welcome to Dallas, Texas

After travelling on the World's longest commercial airline flight (by distance), we finally hit Dallas. Home of the Cowboys, Mavericks and the scumbag who shot JR Ewing.

The flight was long and pretty uneventful. No real turbulence to speak of (which really cheeses me off) and lots of food to be consumed. The movie selection was pretty good and I highly recommend the awesome Kiwi vampire movie, 'What we do in the Shadows'; it's hilarious.

Clearing through Customs on arrival was a nightmare. First we need to complete a form, then we didn't, then we needed to join a special queue, then were told that we were in the wrong queue. Then we were told we had to fill out a special form, then told it wasn't needed before being sent to the secondary Customs desk to fill out said form and proceeded to wait an eternity for it to be processed, then we were told that we needed to follow the Customs Officer to see a supervisor, only to be told before we got there that all was okay and that we were free to leave. That only took around an hour-and-a-half.
We then picked up the rental car and proceeded to speed off between Fort Worth (where the airport is), and Dallas to make sure we would be in time for Josh and I to get to the Concert he had booked so long ago. In order to make our timings, we dropped off Maureen, Schuyler and Kyle at the Hotel (the Spring Hill Suites in downtown Dallas.

The concert which was at the South Side Ball Room included the bands; Black Veil Brides, Falling in Reverse, Set it up and Drama Club. The queue to get in must have been nearly a kilometre long by the time the doors opened.
According to Josh, the concert was awesome; according to me it was 'huh! I can't hear anything anymore. The acts which were at the South Side Ball Room were Black Veil Brides, Falling in Reverse, Set it up and Drama Club. 

And so ended a very busy day.
