Adaptability Means Planning Ahead

I considered writing this with my eyes closed but the pain has eased off enough that I can keep them open most of the time.

Montreal Itinerary

Looks like it's going to take 2 full weeks, 14 days, to make Montreal. Guess I'm not the road warrior I thought I was, but I just can't imagine pushing that hard for that long. Also, I guess I can't just drop in on my Mom, who I haven't seen in nearly 10 years, for … Continue reading »

Where There's Internet . . .

. . . work gets done. For us, at least. The place we're staying, we haven't been able to connect to their wireless network. I have an idea what might be up, but it'd probably be more work to test than it's worth for the 16 hours we'll still be there. So we're in the … Continue reading »
