it's about eight days before I'm to head out on my great Steinbeck trip, in which I'll be tracing the route that John Steinbeck took for Travels with Charley almost exactly a half a century ago. Wish me luck.



There will be three fundamental differences between Steinbeck's journey and mine:



  1. I'll have no dog with me. However, I'll be carrying an Opus doll -- you know, the penguin from Bloom…

John, If you want to double up I have a reservation already at Sugarloaf   Ridge. I made the reservation online.  The site is paid for already I don't know how much the second car is but I am sure it's much cheaper. Let me know so I can try to change the reservation online or we can just add you when we get there.

I added you to the reservation. I will send you a copy of the reservation to your inbox. They did not charge me for the second vehicle. They will charge when we get there.

Thanks for the CD! Funny that I ejected the CD in the player and it was the mix you did for us last year. Dig the train theme!

John, Thank you for another great camping trip!!

It would probably be easier if you took the"front' spot so I wouldn't have to back up into the space. I'll have my little trailer, so be sure to leave enough (it adds four feet to the length of the bus).

I expect to be there around one p.m., if not sooner.
