Don't you just love it? NOT!  

The advantage of a driving trip is supposed to be the ability to take as much stuff as you want, you just fill the car up. Right?  Unfortunately I have to drag everything on and off the boat before I even get to the car. That complicates things.

My plan is to leave the island on the 8am boat and start driving north.  Weather permitting, I'd like to make it Coalinga before stopping for the night.  Then on Wednesday I'll head out again and arrive in Santa Clara at a reasonable hour. Yes, I could do the entire 371 mile drive in one day and that's exactly how I did it last year when I went to Stitches West.  But last year I also arrived completely wiped out and fell face first into a coma within seconds of arriving at my hotel. I'd like shoot for a better experience this year.

So...clothes & toiletries in the suitcase, laptop & accessories in the carry-on with knitting paraphernalia...somehow, this will all come together between now and tomorrow morning. I am Stitches bound and I have faith.  But faith is not going to be enough, in order to make this happen first I have to get off the couch and off this computer.

See ya further down the road!

That sounds like so much fun. Have a safe trip!

(Hopefully your yarn purchases won't earn you a double trip on your boat back home.)
