In between, we'll be renting station wagons to drive around the UK. THAT bit of hassle is still to do, because you can't reserve TWO of something on the rental company's website. I could just do the same thing twice, but I'm afraid they might think I screwed up. So I e-mailed the company, and they sent me a phone number (in GB!!!) to call. So I guess I'll have to do that next.
Tonight, I have e-mailed reservation requests to all the campsites, scout huts, hostels, and the Baden-Powell House we hope to stay at. I hope all the dates we've asked for are available. I imagine there'll be some back-and-forthing, but we're gettin' 'er done.
Then come Edinburgh - Stirling Castle - Ben Nevis - Hadrian's Wall - Scafell Pike - Medieval York - Welsh castles - Snowdon - Wesley sites in Bristol - Glastonbury Tor - Stonehenge - Oxford - Punting on the Cher - London with all the trimmings!
We've got a crew fundraiser in a couple weeks. Hope that finishes off all our financial needs. And I hope that everybody gets their passports on time (some of those who should know better are procrastinating). Oh, yeah -- and I've got to e-mail or call the British Embassy to see about bringing trek food into the UK with us.
Strange as it seems, my son-in-law, anher, has to get a security briefing, since he's in the Navy and traveling out of the country. I guess in case the nicors attack us (though we won't be traveling by boat, so it'd have to be trolls or something).
