The trip is less than a week away and I've got a lot of work to do. Picked up some pork chops today, also some double A batteries and a new tank of propane for the camp stove.
We've moved in to the early fall weather pattern, cooler and drier than summer, very pleasant. I hope it stays that way.
I'll start spreading out the gear in the garage monday afternoon, but then I've got to go out of town for an overnight trip. I'll get back the same day that Bruce flies in. We'll spend Thursday checking the gear and packing, hit the road Friday
I've been reading my Chesapeake Bay chartbook every night like it is a best seller. I can't wait for this trip.
My colleagues put the picture up on the wall in one of the offices where I sometimes work. Fine.
But did they have to caption it "Monkey, left, and Steve"?
