Another Monday and another marathon day of travelling.
The Everton squad were up super-early to catch an 8am flight from Edmonton to Salt Lake City in preparation for Wednesday's All-Star game.
After a slow progression out of the Canadian city and a two-hour flight, the Blues arrived in Utah and were greeted by baking temperature of 30 degrees-plus.
It was swiftly onto the team bus and the party were whisked away to a restaurant owned by Blues director Robert Earl. The eaterie was Italian-themed and magnificently styled throughout.
The food didn't disappoint - neither in quality nor quantity. So much so, in fact, that the chef received a round of applause for his efforts from all the players and staff.
A few quick snaps outside followed then it was onto the team hotel in Park City.
No sooner had David Moyes, Phil Neville and Tim Howard arrived, they were whisked away and into a press conference to promote the game.
All three players answered questions from the US media before Freddie Ljungberg was ushered in on behalf of the All-Stars.
evertonTV wasn't to be denied and we blagged an exclusive one-on-one with the Swede.
He recalled his experiences of facing Everton and - particularly - Duncan Ferguson.
Once it had cooled somewhat it was off to training and it was great to see the Yak take part in the majority of the work that was done. More good news is that he'll be doing an online webchat tomorrow (see the homepage for details).
There were more media obligations for some of the lads but then it was back to the hotel, dinner and bed.
Don't forget to subscribe to evertonTV and watch the game LIVE on Wednesday (Thursday 2.50am UK time).
