Whew! It's a lot packed into two weeks of travel. We're getting excited: Gary has all of his clothes laid out in the study already. I guess I'm excited too - I actually pulled out my old "weighs nothing" duffel bag and ordered a new camera battery. And since we're leaving at 3:30 a.m. I guess I'll have to pack prior to the morning of travel.

[Or stay up all night.]
