Thursday evening. Ready for bed. Quick post only.
I shopped, baked and cooked all day. And I have filled my little fridge to overflowing. Should be nearly enough food for us for the weekend. A little more to organise, but some can’t be done too early, or the food will be soggy and yucky.
Picked up the kayak.
Em and her boyfriend came by to learn about taking care of the cat and horse that will be left behind for the weekend.
T&E came over for dinner and I think everyone is feeling pretty good about Saturday.
Still need to pack my transition crates with all the gear I need at each change over, and I have to put the horse’s stuff together, which won’t take too long. Last thing to do will be to pack the eskies and take some food to T&Es to put in their caravan fridge. I hope to be ready to go by 12 noon tomorrow, though Mat doesn’t expect to be ready that soon. That’s alright, I think I will remain most calm if I am ready when Mat is, and not have to run around finishing stuff up when he says he’s ready to leave.
I set a target finish time for Saturday: I am aiming to be complete by 4:30pm. They end road closures at 5:00pm, so I assume they generally expect everyone to be in by 5ish, but it doesn’t seem like there’s any cut off time.
I won’t have internet access until we get back Sunday night, but rest assured there will be an immediate update on my successes and failures of the weekend as soon as I have unloaded the ute, and possibly after a nap. 🙂
See you in three days!! 🙂
