Clearing the Last Few Hurdles

Today brought us three huge steps closer to the road and the freedom that follows it.  We cleared the last few critical hurdles this afternoon, two on the financial front and one on the professional front.  Without going into the gory details, there were three tasks that had to occur before we hit the road but could not occur any sooner than today, four days before we are scheduled to leave.  I can happily report tonight that they all are done and done…and done.  After weeks of waiting–waiting for things to go right, waiting for things to go wrong–we are finally able to take a deep breath and let ourselves sink slowly into the realization that what we’ve been talking about for months is actually going to happen. -J
