The Countdown Begins

January 23, 2008

That’s the day we head out in our motorhome for a month on the road. We’re not sure where we are going but since we live in Canada, it’s January and we don’t snow mobile or ski we’re thinking south is probably the best direction. Marilyn has spent weeks sewing in preparation: She has re-upholstered our dinette and sewed numerous (I’ll get a headache if I count them all) cushions. She is now in to planning menus . For my part I have organized our bikes, gathered together our tools, checked out the Fruck, you know all the “blue” jobs. I have also spent a lot of time on Mapquest checking out locations of the Flying J’s, Walmarts and Liquor stores. We’re gonna be OK.

So now we really start the countdown. Within a couple of weeks we’ll start vibrating. Not that we’re excited. Of course not. It’s still 20 days, 14 hours, 26 minutes away. Why would anyone be excited?
