09/23/2010: Getting ready. Getting set. Getting gone.
So we're almost ready to go. The last weeks have been interesting. Read the picture captions:
The painters still have some work to do, but can probably manage while we're gone.
We hope to be on the road by noon. The sun is rising, and I have yet to begin packing. Karen has spent her "free time" in the last few days packing her clothes and food and detailing the car and such. I've been herding contractors, and grooming my laptop and gathering cameras and accessories to hopefully have all the tools I need to easily keep up this blog. I've even battened down MrTitanium to let shoppers know that I won't be shipping till the latter half of October.
Our plan is to head north through central Iowa, to Minneapolis. Up to Fargo, then west on I-94 and other more interesting byways to Seattle, maybe Vancouver. Then winding southward to Yosemite. And back home over the Rockies.
All in 3 weeks.
