Since the day we got back in 2008 we were planning the next trip, saving, researching, picking up new gear. Most things we have done slowly over the last 5 years but the last 4 months have been a marathon race to get all the last pieces together. Lots of issues to tie up at work, lots of last minute things to get ready on the camper and jeep. The kids last day of school was May 31. I worked until May 31, Cheryl until May 24. That left a lot of things still not finished come June 1. We spent Saturday and Sunday on last minute issues. At some point you just have to drop it and hit the road, you'll never have everything squared away and the clock is ticking. Time to head out!
