My sketchbooks, watercolors and brushes are in the road box. What's really essential? I'm just about to put away my computer. 'Herbie', our trusty CR-V,was serviced last Wednesday and waits to be packed. It's sparkling clean. Who knows when it will sparkle again? As I like to tell people when we travel, "I'm collecting soil samples." We're also collecting great memories! And, every time I get a chance I'll upload a photo from the road. Hope you enjoy the ride.
