|Almost ready to go|
Well folks, two more days to go.
Two more days until I get up at 3 AM (yes, you read that right, it's not a typo) on Friday morning, August 15th, to catch my ride to the Philadelphia International airport.
The airport is a little over two hours away from where I live on the very southern county of Delaware. My flight leaves at 7:29 AM for Buffalo, New York where Pat will pick me up. My flight is scheduled to arrive in Buffalo at 8:30 AM. Travel time 1 hour and 10 minutes. Not bad eh? See, I'm already talking like a Canadian.
I work tonight at the hotel. Then I'm off until I return from Canada next month. Whoopee!
I'm almost packed. See the photo above (taken in my guest room, where Pat stays when he visits) of my necessities that I'm taking with me. I think I have everything pared down um . . . . five shirts (or is it six), a week's worth of underwear, socks, nylon outer jacket (for this chilly nights should they come), toiletry bag including all my medications (darn, I have a lot of medications), two pairs of pants (one long and one short) a sporty jacket for those sporty nights out (we are meeting Dr. Spo and Someone after all). I have other items in my "wheelie" luggage which I won't bore you with listing at this time.
My carryon is basically my Macbook Pro laptop computer. Yes, I will be updating my blog daily (if possible.) My cameras:
iPhone (of course!)
Canon Powershot (for those "other" photos)
Flip video camera (use your imagination)
Batteries for the digital camera
Hey, my head is getting woozy from all the "things" I'm bringing up. Oh yes, my passport. I just received my passport holder yesterday although Pat said I didn't need it (he is a minimalist after all).
I have a list which I will check before I leave. I do have what I think are my boarding passes but just to be on the safe side I'll stop at the kiosk at the airport and print them again.
Now my biggest problem is my "bathroom" problem. When I have to "go" I have to "go." Normally I go when I get up in the morning which is between 6 and 7 AM in the morning. On Friday morning I will be en route to the airport so I want to avoid any emergencies, especially on I-95. So what I'm going to do folks is fast tomorrow.
|When you gotta go, you gotta go!|
I'm trying to convince my self that a fast every now and then is good for you. I'm trying.
So here we go folks, the Big Adventure!
