The preparations are done and I am about to hit the road, I am getting a much later start than I planned. Its is amazing how much time it takes to get everything ready for taking an extended vacation. The first stop will be Yosemite and the Sierras. I will probably start with the "Valley" and if it becomes too hot I will than head up to the high country. I will be cruising in a new set of wheels, a white '95 Dodge Van Sportsmobile, so if you see a White Sportmobile with Texas plates stop by and say hello.
