Now I’m beginning to occupy myself with the thousand little details that go into a roadtrip: maps, flashlights, travel mugs, camera batteries and memory cards, cell phone kits, etc. Nailing down specific destinations is less important than the right playlist for the iPod and the right reading material for the Kindle. Mental preparedness.
Of course our road capsule is in the shop after it got rear-ended on Friday afternoon. We’re waiting to hear if it will be Interstate ready or if I have to buy new tires for the backup vehicle. Fingers crossed.
