(Craig) First, I'd like to apologize to those friends that I haven't spoken to in awhile. It's been a bit hectic.
Now that we are unemployed (big smile), it is truly crunch time. Furniture guy is coming to get it all this Wednesday. We've sold or given away many things. Our friends Phil and Regan threw us a going away party last Friday. It was great to see some old friends and hear some FedEx war stories :) There was quite a snowstorm that day, so some could not make it. No worries! We'll keep in touch. Phil and Regan (ok, more Regan) are expecting their first child next month. Congrats! We want pictures.
My son, Josh, deploys later today for Iraq. Karin and I will be heading down to Ft Carson in Colorado Springs to see him off. Last tour son...then you're done.
Busy! Busy! After the furniture is gone, then we'll do one final cleaning. After that, bring the trailer over to load it up, making sure that we don't exceed gross weights, tongue weight, etc,etc. We'll put the cats in and take them for a spin. Head to an empty parking lot to get some practice in....backing up especially. We still have some minor maintenance to do on both the truck and trailer, but should fit it in this week.
Are we ready to go as of today? NO :) But pretty close!
Our day of departure is gonna be next Sunday, the 28th. We'll make a short trip south to Pueblo, CO and stay. We plan to be in Dallas on April 1st, visiting an old friend that I grew up with. Scott and I were floorguards / DJs at a skating rink in Tucson. We've reacquainted through Facebook and I can't wait to see him and his family. He's an avid cyclist. Scott, if you read this....we've had no time to get on our bikes!! Take it easy on us when we get there :)
I'll post again in the near future....when the dust settles.
If Everyone could be so Kind
