Gas is back on at Nuevo Rancho Lake. There was much rejoicing.

I am packed for South Carolina, Omaha and Seattle — three very different climates at this time of year. A truly heroic amount of clothing seems to be required for an 11 day trip with multiple wardrobes.

At any rate, I'll be hanging with the jeffvandermeers tomorrow night, and doing the whole book festival thing over the weekend.

Meanwhile, the_child will be home soon from her winter sports adventures, so we can spend a few hours together before I hop to the other side of the continent.

Don't forget the total lunar eclipse tonight, around 10 pm Eastern / 7 pm Pacific.

Layers, and inter-coordinating pieces. Of course, with Hawaiian shirts, your color scheme is wide open...

Wear a pair of pants (please!) and bring two more; wear a shirt and bring two more, and a sweater. That'll give you enough mix and match for two weeks. (Have to wash 'em once or twice. Please.)

Plus, of course, unders, sox, coat, scarf, gloves. And sunscreen. And sandals. There ya go! One case, three climates.

No charge, you're a friend. ;^>

And yes, I know telling YOU about packing for travel is like bringing coals to that bear in the woods...
