First bit of bad news on the Odyssey front.
We’re staying at the gorgeous K Bar S Lodge near Mount Rushmore over the 4th of July, and I just read this morning that they have canceled their huge fireworks show at the monument because of fear of wildfires. Bummer. And the weather is supposed to be gorgeous. Oh well. I understand completely.
The second bit of potential bad news involves the endangered health and welfare of the body shop people if they dink around and end up not getting their shoddy work corrected before Wednesday. There Will Be Blood.
We managed to get everything laid out in suitcases last night. The pre-launch preparations have begun. New GPS maps are downloaded, paper and mail are scheduled to shut down, and Lars and Simone are scheduled to babysit the homestead during the coming weeks. Rousseau is farmed out to BFF Kay and Bob’s for the duration, and we’re at the point where the only things in the fridge are what we plan to actually eat or drink over the next few days.
Am I forgetting anything?
What’s on everyone’s weekend list? Anything fun?
