+ Leave explosives at home.
+ Bring a tent, after having trained at home on how to set it up. Kids would have fun setting it up (with or without any full night use) on site.
+ Reduce speed below 48 mph while driving through the only partially open community access gate.
+ Load up with plenty of maps beforehand of any possible intended routes; drill down via on-line maps beforehand, making printouts at different magnifications.
+ Make full reservations for all places in advance; a clear itinerary.
+ Involve kids fully in the route planning process. Map familiarity -- at different scale sizes. Involve them in navigation situational awareness during the trip.
+ Achieve work slow down days before departure date. Plan ahead to have full closure of outstanding work issues prior to departure.
+ Feel good about getting full value : pick up RV as early as available and leave as soon as possible.
+ Bring more warm blankets than we're likely to ever need.
+ Leave with good music CDs.
+ Leave with more good (newly rented & unviewed) DVDs than we are likely to ever watch.
+ Bring the other DVD player -- and extra batteries for it. (Does it run off batteries?)
+ Bring more/better firewood.
+ Bring a gallon-size container that could hold stove-heated water to give anyone taking a shower in order to have more on-hand.
+ Bring (buy if needed) binoculars.
+ Pack better -- putting things in cabinates, without anything ever having to roll around or constitute clutter on the floor.
Ok, there had been a nice blog here. on November 2, 2006 9:04 am
I was posting a nice big blog here the other day when after hitting save button I was taken to a nice little 404 Error Page Not Found message because my wireless connection had died and I just couldn't get anything useful to return after hitting back, and forward, and back, and back, and forward, and forward over and over and over again for about 4 minutes before I finally kicked a pillow into the vase above the fireplace.
Time management is becoming and remaining a very important skill -- one I might want to consider dabbling with actually using some day. As long as I don't interact with any people all day long, I'm _usually_ fine. Throw in some people, relatives, kids (hmm... those last two qualify as people?) and, well, it's a bit of a different story. The human story, I suppose, to be exact.
Anyway, I felt embarassed about my profile so decided to come here and at least do _something_.
Oh -- I posted a dysfunctional video at the bottom of my profile at the very bottom; I'm almost proud of myself.

Surgeon on October 22, 2006 7:25 pm
Well, this was interesting. Somewhere amidst some manner or another of testing, I wound up with JC's surgeon listed as my surgeon. I wonder how long that has been up. I got that blanked out now. (Might have been a practical joke by someone? :) :) ) Looks like I've got a lot of profile updating to do. Nice to see that I have at least a couple of friends. Lots of work to do there as well!
