Back In Oswego
I'm back in Oswego after a great week in DC meeting my new granddaughter. This will probably be a first & last visit, at least for awhile. I'm heading west for a couple of months, and, if things go as planned, Brian's company will be sending him & the family to Botswana for 2 years. They both love Africa, having spent 2 years in Cameroon with the Peace Corps, and a half year in Ghana, but it will be a bit more difficult to visit!
It was a boring but uneventful drive back home. Now it is time to pack for the trip to Chilliwack, BC to pick up the new Escape 17B. That should be a more interesting trip. First, it is planned for the "Red Roads", national & state highways rather than the interstates. Second, I don't have a schedule, so I can take as much or as little time as I please.
Right now I'm making the final decisions on what I want to take with me, and what I'll buy after settling into the trailer. One problem is what ever I take has to fit in the back of the RAV4, at least for the trip out. Good thing the rear seats fold to the floor! I have a bad tendency to take far more stuff than necessary for most trips - it was easier to get away with that in the minivans I have been driving for most of the previous cross country trips.
Time to start packing - Till next time!
