This packing/unpacking is getting a little tedious, especially with the dreary weather here (relentlessly overcast, cold, damp, and showery). Every time I fuss around in the lower back storage area I have to open the back doors, which means unlatching and dropping the spare tire, then lifting it back up into place. The spare must weigh 40 or so pounds.
The weather forecasts for the first couple of days of the trip - south into central Mississippi (Collinsville/Meridian), western Louisiana (Westlake) and east/central Texas (Hill Country) look pretty good. Warmer, at least. I checked out the "MapMyRide" site on Google and found a 14 mile loop in Issaquah that goes from downtown clockwise out and around a state park, Squak Mountain, that for the longest time I thought must be "Squawk."
Last night we watched the last two episodes of "Damages." We most likely won't see any more until we've returned. Counting on TIVO in the meantime. Wallace Shawn's conjugal jail visit! "Never bet against a Sicilian when death is on the line." Dominic Chianese playing Uncle Junior Soprano again, only this time with a white mustache and goatee. "If you come back, come heavy or not at all." Is the off shore bank that has the Tobin's stolen fortune located in Aruba or Antigua? I forget already. When he tailed the Tobin daughter/money courier to the island, Tom Shayes' undercover outfit of straw hat, shades, and tropical drink made him look like Waylon Smithers.
