21 days to lift off

I started packing last weekend for my mid-October trip out to Alabama. Last year's trip was exciting and entertaining, so I decided it was worth the 1200 mile drive again.

I could have bought round trip airline tix for about $350 last month but the drive is one of the nice benefits. If I fly, then I shorten the trip by two days. This way I have to leave on Wednesday afternoon to get to Alabama by Thursday night. Besides, 32 hours in the car WITHOUT radio Disney is sounding pretty good right now.

Last week I started getting the VW ready for the drive. The new shocks and mounts will make the ride much less noisy and hopefully a lot smoother. I am hoping to get the windows tinted before I roll out. But I guess we will have to see what The Boss Lady and her new family budget says about that...
