We are completely out of the Fredericksburg house. We have established a base-camp in the guest bedroom of the home of our eldest daughter. Scooter and Javy are acclimating just fine.
We have been sorting and finalizing for our departure tomorrow. Today we bought the needed groceries and washed, prepped and packaged much of it. We are trying to set up to resupply at the end of one week and then come back to base camp to resupply at known grocers, etc. A week is a long time to go, even with two excellent ice chests. We'll see how it goes.
Tomorrow we will finish packing the food and locate all the items that go camping from all the places we've distributed them, since we got here Saturday. The last three days have evaporated - a lot like the water I throw in the pan to see if it's hot enough to cook a pancake. Splat, sizzle, gone.
It's been a long time since I've worked this hard, at least physically. The logistics are very complicated but that's in my wheel house, so I'm not really stressing about anything. My body is complaining and I'm trying to be careful not to do more than I am capable of handling. I'M OLD! OMG! How did that happen?
The sun is beaming through the window. Roxanne is sitting nearby with various pets lounging around. Her BF is at work. Mike is making the rivers run backwards, I mean working for a living. NOTE: They have good WIFI here. That whole rural broadband issue is just an old wives' tale. (JUST KIDDING! Don't get yer drawers in a bunch!)
My main goal,
once we get settled
into our first real camp,
is to lay
on my pink chaise lounge
for as long as I want.
Set your goals high!
