Hi Alison,

It can a bit daunting getting ready for a long ride. Just take it one step at a time and realize that you won't get to everything. It all works out in the end even if you only get the high priority items handled before you leave.

Once you are on the road you will be free as a bird and all the pre-trip insanity will be a distant memory.

Hope to see you down the road.

Kindest regards,
John Downs
