It begins


At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want
Lao Tzu -Tao Te Ching

Reinforcements came in and I'm free to start my vacation that was scheduled a year ago. Leaving at first light.The truck is packed. I've got books on tapes (Into the Wild, World War Z and Charm School by Nelson DeMille), water, weaponry, sandwiches and supplies. I'll post comments and posts when I can, so you all keep the home fires burning.

  12. Charm School is a good one. World War Z is a one trick pony that rapidly gets tiresome...Best taken in small doses.

    Enjoy!

  15. Have fun. For me, it's the trip more than the destination. Guess I'm a bit of a vagabond at heart.

    With Barkley, you'll have good companionship.

I started this blog for family that lives far away. Now that they are gone, it continues on to share those memories.

Comments are welcome,but if you have a fake name, no blog and only comment on the rare occasion to criticize or offer advertising for a business I've never heard of, you go straight to SPAM.
