Readying to Go (the Weekend Before)

As I’m writing this, I’m sitting in a quiet place reconstructing my playlist for the trip. It won’t be as good as the first version because I’m doing a quick and dirty job rather than taking my time as I was able to do with the first. Still, I should have plenty to keep myself musically occupied on the road. And there’s popular music spanning from the 1900’s to today. Jazz, R&B, Country, Rock, Gospel,… there’s not much that’s not represented. Someone asked me why my driving playlists don’t include Classical music. The simple reason is it creates the wrong response from me at the wrong time. I need to be analyzing the road, not the music.

My new GPS arrived yesterday afternoon–thank goodness for overnight shipping, and I programmed my itinerary into it last night. The irony is that I’d intended to do that with the “old” GPS the night it was stolen and forgot to take it out of the RB. Oh well, c’est la vie….

So many things to do and so little time to do them. Let’s just say the paper… isn’t. As it is now–officially–the last minute, it’s time to put what’s in my head on the screen. Don’t be surprised, though, if the finishing touches don’t occur until I’m on the road.
