Wrapping up things in Ottawa. Getting the moneys, credit cards, and travel documents sorted. Ellin and Jrem are giving us the plug adapter that I was going to buy tomorrow, which knocks off a last “to do”. I hope to sell the go kart tomorrow, which I feel is a major milestone in my maturation. Kelly arrives tomorrow with the family for the night. The tone of the ~year long trip has been set: We are flying through JFK on the 30th, shortly after hurricane Irene is slated to push 15 ft of water over said airport. Should be a blast!
