Tomorrow is the big day!

In honor of graduation week for so many students, I have attached a picture of Nathan and I at our 8th grade graduation.

Done chuckling yet? Okay, here is the plan:

Nathan and I are heading out to Santa Cruz on Sunday morning after breakfast with Tami and Laurie. I need to pick up some Pacific Ocean water as it's always been part of the way I imagined this trip. Then, we are off to cross the country. We will hang out in D.C. for a couple of days to visit the museums with Laurie who will fly out to meet us there. Then, the three of us will ride down to Key West, Florida to spend a couple of days. There, the Pacific Ocean will swim into the Atlantic Ocean and I'll fill my bottle with Atlantic Ocean. Laurie and Nathan will fly back home from Florida, shipping the Goldwing. I'll continue along the southern part of the U.S. to L.A. and up to Santa Cruz where the Ocean Exchange Program will complete with the Atlantic Ocean swimming into the Pacific Ocean. From there, it is short ride to home. All the while, I'll be missing Tami, The Kid, family, friends, and even Monte and Maggie (our dog and cat).

That's the outline of a plan. We'll see how the adventure fills in the gaps and shapes the expectations into a new reality. Looking forward to it.
