Well, we got away on schedule...almost.
Here's the bus all hooked up and ready to roll. As you can imagine, it takes the cooperation of our neighbors and the Homeowners Association. Northbound on I-95 is something we have done innumerable times before. This time our first day had a very pleasant diversion from the usual interstate/cruise control day.
Over the past several months I have been working with a widow (whom I had never met) of a classmate to jointly create a Memorial Article for her husband to be published in the upcoming issue of Taps. There were innumerable back and forths until we decided we were both happy with the write up, and it was time to go to press. She lives in Fayetteville, so we agreed to meet for lunch at the local Cracker Barrel. Of course, it was a two hour lunch that really wasn't long enough. We'll have to get together again... perhaps southbound in the Fall. The lady's name is Lyn Whitehead. Here's a picture.
We stopped for the night at a convenient KOA in Enfield, NC. I sat down to hook up the computer for the first time on the road this year. I thought that I had organized all the cords and non-cords to resume normal operation. Everything seemed to work except the mouse. Having discovered from son, Mark, that only one dongle supported both the wireless keyboard and wireless mouse, the next possibility was mouse batteries. Given the complete new organization, coupled with the fact that the mouse worked fine yesterday, batteries seemed an unlikely solution. Guess what? It was the batteries. So you get to see a blog tonight after all.
If my count is correct, this is blog number 600. I hope you have enjoyed them as much as I have.
