One of the great things about being retired is that “a change of plans” is not a big deal. I don’t have to shuffle anything but my personal plans….which happen to be wide open anyway.
Some time in the middle of last night I started thinking about my back to back trips in the next two weeks, that I have described in previous posts. In the clarity of the darkness (How’s that for a twisted train of thought?) it occurred to me that to drive 400 miles home on next Monday and then turn around and drive 240 miles back the way I came, on Wednesday, didn’t make any sense. It would be more economical and a whole lot more fun to spend three in-between days exploring southwest Colorado and then show up at my Forest Service gig on Wednesday afternoon.
With permission from The Bride, I will leave tomorrow morning and not return home until the 19th. The only bad thing about this plan is that while I’m gone, The Bride will be leaving to join her mother in New York City to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Amazing Mets 1969 World Series win. She won’t be back until the 25th so we will not see each other for 3 weeks. The Bride’s trip should be a memorable one and I’ll report on it when she returns. Readers may remember that her father was a pitcher for the Amazing Mets.
I will sign off for now. Sometime between the 10th and 12th I will stay at a commercial RV park so I can re-provision and do laundry. I will try and give you an update then.
Thanks for visiting.
