We’re Off!

3 Nov

Despite a heavy snowstorm that turned the highway to sheet ice, we managed to get to the airport on time, and with most of our stuff.  I say most because somehow, a few items we meant to take on this journey have mysteriously disappeared in the last few weeks.  Nothing major, just a scarf I love, and these random little sporks we found in Maine.  It’s odd how things vanish, and we looked *everywhere* but alas, we had to leave without them.   We also left without a deck of cards, which is unfortunate since I own about 10 decks, all of which were bought on vacation.  We really could have used those on the 6 hour layover we had at JFK.

We’ve added a tab up top for “Things We Carry”, and as we have time we’ll get the full packing list up.  For now, we have pictures of everything in each of our bags all spread out, and then fully packed.  It amazes me it all fits.  In fact, what amazes me more is that we each have space in our bags.  This is partly due to the fact that we are wearing our hiking boots and fleeces, but still…amazing.

    I can’t believe you guys laid over in NYC and didn’t tell me. I would’ve come to the airport. Payphones still work, you know.
