Well into final preparations...

2 more work days left until vacation... I can't wait...

Until then, with A's help, we are well on our way to being ready. I (finally) cleaned out my office/spare bedroom for A's grandma. All we have to do is set up her bed and put away the stuff she's already sent ahead of herself.

A's been working on getting the car clean (again, finally). It looks like it has been professionally detailed. There is no point in taking it to a car wash, as it is forecast to be constantly raining every day until we leave on Sunday...

He's also been loading our entire music collection (and then some) into his MP3 player. At last count, we have almost 2 days of constant music without songs repeating... I think we will be OK...

Up next is the final clean on the house, then packing up the plane to leave.

Our plans have changed so much since we started planning this trip. As of right now, we are leaving Juneau for Bellingham, WA on Sunday, where we will meet up with the former owner of our airplane. Then, on Monday, we will proceed down to McMinnville, OR. Tuesday will be devoted to the museum where the Hercules resides (for the uninitiated, that is the "Spruce Goose"). Wednesday, we will fly to Cedar City for my family reunion. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone again. This branch of the family holds a reunion every 3 years, and the last one we were only able to participate for one day. Saturday, we'll head out to Walsenburg, CO to see my grandma, aunt and uncle (and eat some FABULOUS BBQ that my uncle makes... we may need to re-do weight & balance after that stop). Then, it's on to SLC to pick up A's grandma to head north again.

Everyone pray for clear skies and tail winds as we make our trip. As we can, I'll blog about where we are and what we are doing. Thank goodness for iPhone's and their functionality.
