One week to go.

Well, it’s down to the wire. I haven’t started packing yet! I’ve accumulated some goodies for the boat that I don’t want to forget. I’ve got cake mix for our birthdays in June. And frosting too. I’ve long thought that you had to make cake from scratch until lately. Those box mixes taste pretty darn good. Especially on the boat.

The plane leaves next Tuesday at 12:30 pm our time. We get in at 7:00 pm the next day in Sydney. We’ve got a hotel room at the airport and leave again the next morning on a 6:30 am flight to Mackay (pronounced “ma-k-eye”). We have two weeks to get the boat to Cairns (pronounce “cans”) to pick up Howard. It’s about 400 miles. That shouldn’t be a problem and we should  be able to stop a few places on the way.

Now, I’m getting excited.
