As I drove home I decided to take a short detour to visit my mom and dad. It is always a solemn endeavor to go to the cemetery but I felt a need before leaving on our trip. It was an over cast day and the tree at their site is not in bloom but still it is a nice area.
As I was leaving the cemetery the golf cart company called to tell the cart wasn't finished and that I couldn't pick it up today as previously discussed. I quickly cancelled the trailer rental and came home to work on getting the trailer ready for the trip. We purchased a new bike rack for the back bumper of the trailer and I assembled and installed it. I did some minor projects in and out of the trailer while Mia cleaned out a lot of stuff that we really don't need to take. I got my toolboxes organized and labeled.
I was told, later yesterday afternoon, that the golf cart is ready so I need to go rent a trailer this morning and go down and pick it up. Then it is back home to load my stuff into the trailer and make sure we have everything with us. I have one more piece coming UPS from GoalZero that I need to take with me and I'll be all set to hit the road.
The only thing that remains to be found out is how long and how far I will be able to drive. I get stiff and the hamstring bothers me enough still that I can sit for really long periods of time without breaks. Rest stops will be my friend. Our plan is to go south to California and across to the Tucson area. I suspect it should only take four days but with my conditions it will likely be more. Until I get to Arizona I really don't have any interest in stopping and site seeing. Seen most of it several times over the years.
Hope all is well and thanks for stopping by...
