It is now just a day till I leave on my trip to pick up my restored 1976 GMC Birchaven RV in Orlando. I keep myself busy so I don't overthink everything. Lucky has the right idea, just chill and relax, she certainly does not look worried at all does she? My 2 dogs are coming with me for this journey.
I looked into several ways to get to LAX (Los Angeles International Airport). I thought the train / metro would be the easiest, but the scheduling didn't work out. Then I looked into taxis and even Uber, but ultimately felt I did not want to trust one of those services to pick me up at 3:45 am. Especially for something so important. It's the Taurus in me wanting "control" over the situation. Then a lightbulb went off so I checked into a rental car. It was brilliant! I pick up the rental on Friday and can get everything ready for Saturday morning. All can be packed on Friday and now all I have to do is roll out of bed on Saturday am, get my coffee, and get into the car. I'll dress on the way (just kidding) I'm giving myself 2 hours to get to the airport, which at that time of day should only be an hour away. Then the check in of 2 hours before the flight. I need to drop off the rental car, and then check the 2 doggies in for their tickets and processing. It's always a bit hair-raising when you are doing something like this for the first time. So many details to make sure are all taken care of, and I'm for sure going to have a cocktail tonight.
Speaking of Cocktails, early on in the redesign of the interior of the coach, I was told the following rule, the most important one....Make sure it sleeps 2, has room for a dinner party of 4, and cocktails for 6. I like that rule.
I think everything is ready now, and tomorrow, my last day in California for a while, is being spent with friends. Next post will be exciting as it will be my first after seeing the finished coach for the first time. YAY!
