leaving early tomorrow for CA.  was hoping i'd get a chance to at least meet Annette, but as soon as i get there, we are all going camping.  it will be the first time that all the sibs have been together in years.  brother back from Afghanistan, and sister over from england.  my youngest brother is so excited.  smiley

i have packed the camping gear and the grungy clothes into the car (also the baby wipes).  now i have to grind enough coffee to get us through.  i guess i am the only one who knows how to make coffee with a camp pot!

it's a 10 or 11 hour drive, but i have downloaded the three volume series "History of the Roman Empire" onto my GPS.  i am ready!!!

I do the same with my wife's GPS, I upload audiobooks from on line or from the County Library online system to a 2gig SD Card - which I know you know is enough room for dozens and dozens of books. I tend to keep it at least half full, although mostly she'll use the cars MP3 Player to listen to most books while driving to work and home. But if we are a way, we often use the GPS collection so that we have a great portable device with loud audio to listen to books together.

Have a great camping trip, I sure missed out on the sibling train, onlt having one brother who died young. Thanks the lucky stars for friends, each lights my noghts sky brightly and it is about as close to real family as you can ever get!

Round trip would get you almost half way thru the audiobook version of "Atlas Shrugged".    I just finished the 52 hours myself grin. Thanks for the great recommendation.   Next is Foutainhead.....

Loved the fountainhead and the movie wasn't bad either. Atlas shrugged was tougher to get through, been quite awhile since I've put that one in my hands.

it's a challenge, but one worth taking up.

a couple more that are easier and shorter!  America Alone by mark steyn and Liberty and Tyranny by mark levin.  the second is new and is a really good review of history, constitution, and changes.

Oh Kathy, that chance to get together with family, worth more than what words can say.  What is it with the bond between siblings?  I so often wonder how it can be so ding dang special.  You will have the time of your life with those dear souls.  Have fun, laugh your brains out, camping can be the most down-to-earth experience.  One with the wind and fire.  Take care, enjoy, savour each and every moment of your time together.  Now aren't you just plain and simply so glad that you know how to cook coffee on that campfire, smiling.  Enjoy, we'll hear from you when you get back, (and I am sure that you WILL have some pictures to show now, won't you, dear friend).  I will be thinking of you, as I join with my siblings and their clans in a huge get-together this Saturday night, as we share probably one of the last sibling get-togethers on our property, before our big move takes place.  We are doing pot luck, with the big campfire in the back field, hots dogs and marshies, um, yum.  Have the time of your lives.  Beautiful days, to live, love, share, health.  Cindi

took 12 hours, but not a bad drive.  i enjoy the GPS, it keeps me company and it's fun to mess with it.  it gets upset when i don't go the way it wants me to go.  i'm going to see if i can cause it to have a nervous breakdown on the way home!!

the weather sucks.  we are headed up the mountain in the am.  last night there was constant lightening, thunder, hail, etc.  one of the worst t-storms i have ever been through here.  hope we don't have the same on our trip.  if you hear about a bunch of bodies washing out of a campground in Truckee, it's probably us  smiley

Glad you survived. A trip like that makes you appreciate the little things in life so much more. And now you have all those sweet memories, of course now that you're on dry land!
