I feel as though I’m in the home stretch … just over 2 months to go before I leave for England. I’ve decided to post this blog from my HP Netbook so that I can have some practice working with the small screen and keyboard. I’m using Opera for my browser and have downloaded images from my camera using Picasa. So far so good.
I’m busy crossing items off my to-do list and I’m making progress but there is a long way to go. That said I feel more or less prepared and am very much looking forward to getting this show on the road.
I’ve assembled and tested all of my gear, completed my route planning (small adjustments notwithstanding), booked accommodation for the first week and purchased my train ticket from London to Penzance (and for only GBP15 too!).
I still have work to do organizing all of the information I’ve collected related to my family history research and of course there are still some LEJOGistics to work out.
I have a few more long walks planned before the end of March and in fact I wish I was out today as it is beautiful and Spring-like. I’ve been following the weather in England closely so I may annoy some British readers when I mention that the cherry blossoms are out on some of the local trees. I hasten to add that you will be less annoyed than the Winter Olympic organizing committee who will have to explain to the hundreds of thousands of people who will shortly descend on Vancouver as to why there are drifts of daffodils rather than snow. Then again Spring might retreat in time for the games. Either way it’s just around the corner and I can hear the South West Coast Path beckoning!
