A moving experience

Movers come tomorrow afternoon, and while just having done this a year ago and again a year before that will make the process a bit easier, I'm still looking at some choice packing over the next 24 hours. But unlike when we were on the road last year, I plan to keep on blogging. We acquired a 32-foot Class A camper, a 1995 Fleetwood Flair with low mileage (although I'm about to go duct-tape the fresh crack in the coolant resevoir). We are about to get a special antenna that can pick up any wireless signal within eight miles and assign its own IP address to it, which will give us Internet access as long as we're not in the utter boonies. A run hell-bent for leather up to Edmonton from here would take 26 hours, which we plan to split up over twenty days, taking the long way up the coast and making art all the way. I quartered thirty sheets of watercolor paper for the trip.
We have a sign for the camper with a quote from G.K. Chesterson: "An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered."
