I like plans.
I like long range plans, and short range plans.
I do not mind if a plan gets changed, as long as there IS a plan!
As we get closer to our winter trip the plans have changed.
We are now going to leave on Friday instead of Saturday. If we need to overnight, we will still get to San Diego by Christmas Eve.
We are going to drive down on Hy. 101, a more meandering state highway with better scenery and more opportunities to stop, instead of I5, a straight and somewhat boring Interstate down the center of the state.
Taking 101 adds a few miles, and will take a little longer, but it will probably be more interesting.
The biggest change is that we have decided not to take the car. We are not set up to tow yet, and we had planned on one of us driving the Alfa and one the Prius. But that's no fun! Without the car we can more comfortably trade off on driving the Alfa. I want my time behind the wheel too.
Looking at our itinerary we decided we really only need a car for few days out of the four weeks we will be gone. So we are just going to rent one in L.A. We have a couple of days after the parade and before the rally to do things in L.A. It would be pretty hard to find parking for a 36' Motorhome! We shouldn't need one at the rallys themselves. We will be with other Alfa people, and hopefully if we need to get to a store or something we can get a ride with someone else.
I plan on being pretty well prepared as far as groceries go, and I can't think of anything else we will need a car for.
We may take our time coming home, but we will just have to manage without side trips this time.
The next few days will be very busy for me. I'm going to start packing The Big White Thing tomorrow!
