Gettin Ready...

We leave on July 5th and are still in the midst of preparing for our move.

We've sold some of our junk stuff (Thanks Rheas!).

Still can't believe no one bought the shot glass checker set!

Stored the rest (Thanks Doug!).

Now... where did I put my passport?

And found the cats a home (Thanks Hayeses!).

Laney putting Toonces to shame on the way to Houston

But no matter how ready we are to move on, I'm not sure we'll ever be truly prepared for such a hefty transition.

However, one can try...

Like living out of a suitcase in small quarters:

Unorganized Chaos
Extended Stay in Irving, TX.  Where else can you spectate half-naked (re: pool) drunken (re: cadillac bar) indoor putt-putt  (re: random) golf from the 'comfort' of your own room?

Subjecting ourselves to daily regemented mock rain storms:

Tropical Approximation
Cameroon conditioning facility

Living in someone else's house:

ONLY 10 pages in the house rule book?

East Texas near Scroggins.  We really lucked out (thanks Swaskos!) as just the car port beats our previous residence in square footage.  Plus, the neighbors are quieter:

Twitterpated, imo

We're also armed with a cool array of products whose efficacy we'll be reviewing during our travels.
Such as:
  • MajicJack - Free calling back to the states using the internet
  • Solar Shower - Access to a 'warm' shower
  • Steripen - Water purifier which uses UV radiation to destroy the DNA in harmful microbes
Still much to do and savour!  Next post from Cameroon (unless zandewoman decides to rise from the Blog ashes...)
