Well, I'm not doing this solely for the fun of it. I'm also doing this wonderful ride to raise funds for Alzheimer's research. The National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association (NARFE) has a great partnership deal with the Alzheimer's Association under which 100% of funds donated through NARFE are used for research. So, think of my father and all the others you may have known or heard of who suffered from this horrible afflication, put pen to check, and send a donation payable to NARFE Alzheimer's Research. Mail it to NARFE Alzheimer's Research c/o Robert Tucker, 279 Sunnyside Lane, Williamstown, VT 05679. Doesn't matter how much or how little, just send something.
So, AAAAUGH. Only a week to go!!!! Everytime I cross off something on my "to do before I leave" list I add two more. Enough!! Made sure the camera works with the mini-computer. Have my bag of cords and chargers, MP3 player, camera, computer, cell phone. My carry-on bag resembles a Radio Shack store! Found the map clip and odometer I couldn't find for the longest time. Thanks for the help finding them, Dad! Needed a little divine assistance to find them. The Goldings drop spindle goes in the carry-on bag along with 4 oz. of spinning fiber, and a knitting project (sister-in-law Connie's shawl). Think TSA is going to think I'm wacky (no comments Kak).
I think I have the best group of crazies following this blog! Hope I can keep you entertained!
