Almost time for a California road trip
If our flights go as scheduled – and we all know that on-time air travel is nowhere near a certainty – we should arrive in California in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. Although not a job that anyone likes, especially at that time of day, our daughter will be at the airport to pick us up, and then transport us south to her and her husband’s home in Perris. At some point following that, Rebecca and I will need to figure out a way to get from there to Oakland to meet up with Daniel from Tumbleweed to pick up our bikes. According to Google Maps, that’s about a 6.5 hour drive. As neither of us have ever been much north of Los Angeles, it should be a fun road trip.
Today’s big jobs:
- remove, clean, and store outboard engine
- clean, and bring dinghy up on deck to secure it for our absence
After that is done, we’ll be boat-bound until our water taxi arrives on Tuesday morning. I hope we don’t run out of wine!
