Two Days to Departure

While we contemplate our enormous pile of gear and wonder whether we have surpassed two hundred pounds of spare parts (the “free” weight limit for the plane), I am reminded of my father’s saying.  “Enjoy the preparation for a trip since that is half of the trip itself.” After months, if not years, John and I are close to our departure day.  I would like to say we are “ready to go”.  Regardless of the readiness aspect, I can say that “we are going”.

Our expectation is that we will post to this blog everyday starting October 12th.  We have spent a zillion hours on communication and we will be seriously disappointed if we cannot connect to the blog site.   So keep an eye out and check in from time to time to see how we are progressing, or as they say in the boating world, see where we are bound.

    All I can say is – Wow what an adventure! Take lots of pictures and don’t worry about the kids – they’ll be fine and call always call on us for ANYTHING. Best of luck – we’ll cross our fingers and toes that you’ll miss any typhoon action. Much love, Sybil
