It is getting closer and real now. After a year of waiting, got my tour roster, guide, info, etc. Two of my friends took the London 7 day tour last year and had Jeanie Carmichael. We got her too! Woot Hoot! 25 tourmates. Nice size. Now have to wait another week for my Paris & HOF tour info.
Serious packing thoughts need to start. Switching to the convertible backpack and smaller backpack this year. Going to try my best to pack lighter this year. But it can be done!.
Knee report for all who know I had replacement last august - doing pretty well. Our weather has been so weird this year, so it was hard to get out and be active. Went for a 4 mile walk last week and held up. I ride my recumbent bike about twice a day (morning before work and when I get home). Working a lot of extra hours for trip money. I am up and down at work (retail) and have done well at work. Pain is sometimes 0 to 2, depending on weather and my daily activity. I think all will be well on the two tours. Not looking forward to the plane trip part tho.! Did do a work rode trip end of February with car travel from Tulsa to Nashville and did pretty well in the car. We had our first grandchild in February, so he has taken up a lot of my free time (which has been wonderful)!
