Did people got sick coming back from National?

I am just wondering, because a lot of my team got sick on the way back to California...

-Ken Leung, who went crazy celebrating for 2 minutes 31 seconds at 6am in the morning finding his multivariable-Calculus midterm got pushed till Thursday, but got really sad because he caníŽt stop coughing every minute, had a painful headache for a couple of day, can barely walk around because he walk too much around the pit, caníŽt speak because he cheered too much and talked to too much people, and can only see through one eye for couple of days because of eye-infectioníK .-(

Most team members I know stayed home on Monday b/c they were so sick! Then there were the ones like me who suffered through school all day with no voice, a sore throat, cough. But those things only kicked in passing in the hallways b/c once I got into my classes I was asleep on a desk ! It's all worth it though! I love FIRST!!!!

As a matter of fact i became sick on friday at nats and i still am! I had to suffer on the plane ride home because of my sinus problems and the cabin pressure.
Congratulations to everybody at nationals. Excellent job!

A lot of people on our team got sick too, and some still are. Isn't that odd. Do I smell a conspiracy?

This very idea was discussed with my doctor as he prescribed more medication. The answer is: Air Travel.

Here you are all crammed into a little space with the air recirculating over your face. To make matters worse we all adjust the vents to blow on our face. A passenger in row 2A - First class ( I will never see ) coughs and sneezes and wham the germs are spread to all passengers. Then the exposed passengers get ( some of them ) on another flight and spread the germs to another section of the country.

Strange idea? NO! My doctor said illness ( colds, sinus infections ) are spread by the air systems and if your system is weak..... And you know after 3 days of stress, yelling, cheering and in general going crazy with little sleep we are in a weakened condition.

The answer is ...... be as healthy as possible when we start and hope not to crash and burn before the season is over.

I spent 30 hours on a bus each way, and I did not get sick.... Maybe it is something to do with air circulation in airplanes...

Man, and i thought my laryngitis was bad. It developed the day after we arrived, so i couldn't talk to anyone without getting weird looks. I sounded like that lady from the smoking commercials ... you know, the one who smokes through her neck? When i called home, my little sister hung up on me 4 times because she thought it was a prank and didn't believe it was really me.

Though nobody else on the team got it (until later in the week from me), i suspect that it was plane-related.

I also couldn't talk on the first or second day of nats and I didn't even fly. At least I didn't annoy as many people as I usually do..

We encountered a delay at MCO on our way home, a part was broken on our plane and it took them a long time to find the part and fix it..and then we flew home on what was once a broken plane (if we flew it in the condition it was in, the electrical wiring for the cockpit could have shorted, I was too scared to really even listen)
Lets just say, I had blisters on my hands after we got home. I think I prayed for 96% of my flight.
Lots of turbulence too, a thunderstorm...but an unusually good landing.

Usually if there's a mechanical or electrical problem with a plane and they know about it before take off, they fix it. And they fix it good. Because if they don't and there was a plane crash it would open up the airline to all kinds of liability because they knew about the problem and did not fix it. So if they tell you about a problem and that they fixed it, it's fixed. So don't worry so much. Then again I remembered that some of the FIRST teams have engineers that design airplanes....
