August 7th, Trip Day minus 1;
Well, after many months of preparation we leave on our summer adventure first thing tomorrow morning. Hopefully I can keep this blog interesting enough to get you all to keep coming back. As you'll quickly find out, Mary and I love food so this blog will more than likely gravitate to our food adventures.
