It's Thursday and I haven't posted due to a lack of an internet connection. Actually I would have posted Tuesday's blog before leaving Germany, but I was abruptly reminded in the wee hours Wednesday morning of the Cardinal Rule of writing electronically: SAVE EARLY AND SAVE OFTEN. I'm not sure what I did, but it doesn't really matter now.

They say getting there is half the fun. Well, I'll save that old axiom until we get there, literally. Until then, this is just "kick-off" entry to announce we are finally on our way. And aren't I glad! Finally is an understatement, but all the hard work planning and organizing (and preparing and procuring and packing) is all going to be worth it. This is going to be a trip of a lifetime...... read more
