Ohhhhh brrrr here still...So glad we have this campfire to keep warm...I think the baileys is almost done - guess it might be my turn - so I will crank up the wine stock now that she has aged a few weeks...Help yourselves Lots of Blackcurrent Merlot - two batches - wow I will be stocked right up for my trip. The day I leave the Chocolate Raspberry Port will be ready too so I will have a case of that to keep me nice and lubricated
Hey Steph thanks for those links. I am getting super excited and only 3 weeks to go. Have been running around getting all sorts of things ready. New passports arrived today so that is one less thing to worry about.
Ha Remember that one Carol - I did say I would get one before you -
I actually almost forgot!!! - I was supposed to get that taken care of back in October. But since it was a renewal I did not have to do all the stuff you normally do - they have a new passport process in place good thing - only took 2 weeks. Instead of 9 Phew.
So here is the new truck backed up to the very cold looking ModPod. We have been trying to keep up with the snow. But it has been so darn cold to get out and clear the snow off her and around - will try to get that done this weekend.
I was to get the cap installed today but yesterday they called and cancelled that it was too cold to work so they shut their shop down - now scheduled for Monday afternoon.
I picked up my Yakima roof racks and will need to get them installed. Not sure how I will do it - maybe one on the cap and one on the cab - that way the sunroof will work and I will not be too close to the front of the trailer with the kayak...even too cold to get out and measure. Have a couple of cockpit covers to make to keep the rain out of the kayaks.
Hey Lois lets hope it is in Mass - you will join the club of Massholes as they are known. One year we were at Paradise Park in Florida and we were in the visitor parking with 3 other couples from the Bar Harbor area - what a great time we had and they made Peter and I honorary Massholes... Would you be there before the end of March - if so be sure to keep us posted I will swing by on my way back north and we can share a glass of something anyway.
Wow souixcitygro - I know all about pneumonia - that is not very much fun at all - Be sure to take really good care of yourself and take the time you need to recoup. I had complications with mine which put me down for months it seemed. But I am great and back to my old self again now. Have some of the wine I just set out - that will clear your sinus for sure...
You know Laura - when you do such a fabulous job of the Rallies it is hard for people to take it on - excellent shoes to fill syndrome.
I will help where I can. But I have no time to commit between now and when I leave - plus I am not going to be feeling too well next week - so I will say once I get settled in SC I will give it some thought and see what is up by then. I might just try my hand at running one on the east coast. Sorry you MI Gals - I have a bit of an advantage being piggy in the middle so to speak. But it would be kind of nice to get a few more women involved if we can.
Hey Carol hope your surgery went okay today and you are back home now resting and feeling semi okay....Lap of luxury now for a while eh Brad will have to wear the apron for a while. But then he is a great cook - so you will be just fine. Make sure you whine a bit and he might part with a few foot rubs...anyway hope you are fine.
So Jamie where you at girl - been a long time - if you still check in let us know if you are up for a women's rally between your place and the state line of Ohio
