Casting Off

In a few minutes, I will shut down the computer and go finish packing for the next leg of the trip. The idea is to decide what needs to go in the small roomette in which we're traveling tonight versus what can stay in the large, heavy suitcase and not need to be touched in route. The latter will stay in the luggage rack and not clutter up the compartment. Not an easy task. Wish I could figure out a way to get the stuff in my briefcase to all fit in the backpack.

Anyway, I expect to be offline until I get to my office sometime late Thursday morning. Hope there are not too many explosions in the next twenty hours. And I'm really hoping that the heat we're having here in Washington and Oregon doesn't cause heat-related rail delays due to possible sun kinks.
