Babs is in the shop getting new tires and bearings for the trip. I pick up the second kayak tomorrow night and then I hit the road Friday morning.
I’m excited but also kind of nervous. I think it’s the idea of being gone for so long. Right?
A lot of you have asked about Roz, the faithful copilot. She has developed an over-the-top fear of riding in the car and, therefore, she’s not going to be able to go with me. It kills me – she’s my travel buddy and my security system – but I just can’t torture her like that. Watching her shake and pant in the backseat is just more than I can handle, but she’ll be in good hands with Carey and Karl Nickels and Nicole Johnson!
