day 4. travel.
Sunday, January 05, 2020
time to travel. not as far as I'd like, or had planned. we were supposed to leave for molokai on wednesday, but in a burst of overconfidence, i had overlooked one of the boxes for claire the border collie to enter hawaii without quarantine, and she now has to wait 30 days for a rabies titer. which made DH very happy, because i have had a recurrent skin lesion for which i finally have an appointment to see a specialist on tuesday, the day before we were supposed to have traveled to molokai, and DH (also a doctor) is sure i will need minor surgery to remove the lesion, and wanted to postpone the trip anyway. so it looks like the fates have conspired. we head for seattle today, trying to get across the mountains between snowstorms, and will do errands and doctor appointments and eye checks and all that fun stuff over the next few days.
which means i will get the opportunity to dust off my travel habits - remember that hunger is not an emergency. check out menus before going to the restaurant so that there is a plan. and making wise choices. exercise will be walking - usually we manage to get the steps in just fine, once we have made the 5 hour trip. and there is less temptation to snack between meals, just because nothing is available.
so we will leave the pastoral countryside for a few days. a last glimpse of the currier and ives surroundings here
