It appears that things are on track to take the first step next Tuesday or Wednesday!!!...WOW after a year of plotting (not much planning!!!) here I am...I suppose at this point the most important thing that I have learned is..."get out of the way and let life happen"...more to come on that...Sunday I will pick up my first AND most appropriate pilot car driver, (No Mom you DON'T have to drive the motor home!!!) and head for Vancouver which will be the base-camp for about a week or so...when all else failed my 80 year old mother (OK 70!!!) chose to start if NOT finish this journey with me as my very first pilot car driver, complete with safety sign and flashing lights...thanks Mom, a number of people owe you one!!!
