Today is the first day of vacation. Real vacation. Everything is done for the big trip so today is mostly watching movies and football and other TV shows. There were a couple of brief trips the whole 2 miles to Walmart for little things as well as a couple calls to credit card companies to make sure that they won’t panic if there is a charge from Maputo or Male or Manila.
Tomorrow will be more of the same. Kim will come over to go over final things for her living here for six months. And the great mouse hunt continues. We’ve set traps for three nights and so far no luck. Either the critters are very smart, or finding something to eat elsewhere.
Some of the folks going are already worrying about impacts of El Nino and some changes of times for arrival and departure from various ports. They seem to forget that out of 92 ports we’ll miss a couple of them for weather or other reasons and there will be nothing we can do about it. It goes with the territory, just like flying in winter means you may have delays. Stuff happens and we just go with the flow.
In 48 hour we’ll be in 80 degree Florida instead of 39 degree Utah. I can hardly wait.
