I realized this morning, minutes after the truck left, that my darned passport (and $700 in saved money for the trip) were actually packed in a small cedar chest that I had packed in another of my boxes about 12′ into the truck… I freaked out pretty bad and we even had the truck depot hold the truck there before we found out that I can still cross the border as long as I have a birth certificate and valid ID, which I have both of. Whew. Anyway, the truck is gone and we’re planning on leaving on Sunday now (because Julie has a paper for class to work on and I have to pack the car). So it’s going to be a busy day tomorrow.
Julie and I finally finalized the route we’re driving and any possible stops along the way—the newest route is at http://turbogfx.net/operation_spruce. It’s looking good for weather, too—more or less.
