Happy Tuesday all!! It's Pod here today with the blogging duties. In case you didn't know, the 2016 ERU (that's Eastern Round-Up for long) is coming up next week. This year it's going to be all the way up in Traverse City, Michigan. Oh wow!! Many, many thanks in advance to Beth and Mark of "arrrr" Pod fame, who are this year's un-leaders.
Anyways, this week has been super busy already. Tomorrow is the last day of classes for Rob and Trisha, then he has one more day to work, and she has two. Also, Trisha, is having to move her classroom this year, along with all the end of school year craziness.
On top of that, my folks have been busy getting ready to leave on Saturday late morning for the trip to T-City.
Over the Memorial Day weekend, I got washed, waxed, bearings greased, tire pressure checked, inside swept, mopped, bathroom washed, new shower curtains, and Rob even went through some of my containers to discard items no longer needed or used.
Levi also got washed and waxed, and this afternoon I watched Rob loading the camping gear into the back of Levi.
You'll notice Big Yeti there. He's been kept cold since about the middle of March (the first camping trip of the season). Rob also got out little yeti, and started his pre-chilling cycle.
I even heard that Trisha already has her clothes mostly packed and ready. The next few days will include finish packing, getting food bought for both Rob's mom and Trisha's dad, meds dispensed for the two of them, friends, neighbors, even the local police on call to keep an eye on them, food supplies for our trip, yard mowed, Levi washed one more time, and even Jackson will get his pre-ERU bath. I'm sure I've forgotten something, but I'm betting Rob has a list of "to-do's" somewhere.
Before you know it though, all the chores will be done, Rob will have me hitched to Levi, and Jackson will be told to "load-up" and we'll be on our way.
So y'all keep your fingers crossed that the last day of school tomorrow won't include Gorilla tape or homicides for Rob and Trisha. Also, be sure to follow along starting Saturday to read about all our fun. We'll be meeting Tink and tink'r-pod in Clinton, TN on Saturday afternoon, then it will be a podvoy all the way to T-City.
Until next time, stay safe out there.....-Pod (for R,T,&J)
