Flight Log: Take-off conditions from the North Pole were excellent, with clear skies, strong winds and low temperatures. I've reached my first destinations just west of the international date line, right on schedule. Proceeding across the Pacific islands rapidly, as very few houses have chimneys, and parking the sleigh is easy. Children not in bed, asleep, are being skipped. I'll have a long way to go-to return to their houses. Hope I can make it.
