This year I am traveling with whatever fits in my fight suit pockets - everything else is going by “Tundra”....hope Louise doesn’t get delayed enroute!

I predict Brian and I will be on the same Welcome Wagon to go pick up our "box" .
We don't ship stuff that we can't live without for a night or two. Like the tent!

You’re right about that. The tent is definitely flying. The mouthwash is shipping. Oooooooh!

Is it okay to ship stuff if you plan on arriving later, like on Wednesday?

Also, don't forget, most major and minor emergencies can be easily solved with a short walk across the street to Target with a credit card.

Second this one.... Target is an easy trip and the welcome wagon can help make it easier.

Shipped the "survival kit" to Osh yesterday. Came in at 49lbs.

I guess we are committed now!


One thing I noticed was that the UPS Store will replace the absent FEDEX tent that was missing last year. Last year we had to drop off outbound shipments at the GES shed. I like that better (UPS Store) since the GES required me to fill out some form with my CC info on it and tape it to the box .... that did not seem very secure....
