The road is calling me

I will leave for about a week in NC tomorrow morning, and I'm not sure how I can sleep tonight. I get so anxious before a trip although this hasn't been too bad, maybe because it is such a short trip. I have the car about half packed, with the rest of the stuff ready to go in the morning.

I'm excited that my cousin Denise, along with her dog Napoleon, will be meeting me on Saturday and stay through Sunday evening. I'm looking forward to seeing her again - the last time was back in 2006, and I will try to put her to work helping me get the storage contents ready to ship. I have a key to the lock on the unit, but I'm not sure if the key I have is the right one to that lock - I'll find out when I get there and hopefully I can get a locksmith to come and cut the lock if I can't open it.

Lady knows something is up and she is ready for whatever it is. I just hope we have some decent weather, though it's likely we'll run into rain along the way. I hope to get some pictures, but haven't had much luck this trip with taking good pictures.

The visit with the Doc this morning didn't materialize. I'm not sure what happened because I definitely wrote 9 am on July 7 in my calendar, but he wasn't there today. He comes over from Long Island one day every other week, and this was an off week. I will try to reschedule when I get back from Carolina and before I start the long trip back to NY.

I will be somewhere in Virginia tomorrow night, so I'll sign off from New York until then.


  1. Would love a chance to get to see you -- we are two hurs away from Asheville--

  2. Drive safe and hope you enjoy the drive. Just getting out on the road is fun even if there's work at the end of it.

  3. Isn't it amazing how our thoughts become things. You didn't really wnat to go to the doctor and you didn't have to. :->

    The day before a trip is always so exciting. Can't wait to find out where you end up in Virginia. My old home state....well I guess it's still my home state even though I'm not there.

    Be safe,

  4. Eyes on the road, hands on the wheel. The happier you go the better you feel. Keep right side up & the upside right. Travel by day or travel by night. There goes Gypsy just heading down the road. Gosh by golly your carrying quite a load. Save travels:))

  5. We are getting tons of rain here in Indiana today. Hope you have safe travels and you and your cousin can get all taken care of. Safe travels.

  6. I get those jitters, too, each night before take off. Safe travels to you, my friend!

  7. Happy Travels to you and enjoy the trip!
