Packing for this has been a task! The advice we got was pack for two weeks and bring layers. I am on round two of my suitcase. I am trying not to over pack but so this is tough. There have been lots of nice distractions however, lots of people are stopping by to say good luck. The dogs are going nuts with all the visitors.
It seems like each time I start to get a little melancholy someone new drops in, a very pleasant distraction.
So the task is still not done but I will finish and be ready to set sail.
