I haven't talked much about stormodacentury's progress in training because there hasn't been much to remark upon. He has been awesome since day one. Our time together, though is drawing near an end. He should be done by the first part of next week and into his own truck. As for me, I'm taking a brief break from training at the conclusion of Stormo's tutelage and will find myself in the court of royalty when queenkatieett comes aboard in the last week of June. I am hoping to arrange a cross-country trip over the weekend of July 4th.
This will be an interesting trip of firsts. Foremost, this will be the first time Katie and I have met. Not counting Stomo's training, it will also be the longest an acquaintance - Livejournal or otherwise - has come on the road with me. This will likely be a 2.5-3 week road trip from the midwest to the west coast and back, another first for taking along a companion. We've been talking about doing this for several months now and have been actively planning it for the past several weeks. It occured to me this afternoon while working-out some of the logsitics that we will be doing this on a holiday weekend, which will likely afford us the luxury of an extra day or two for side-excursions. I would hazard to guess that this will be one of the high points of what is already proving to be a very interesting summer. Our respective journals will no doubt be filled with our adventures in early July. With any luck, I'll have her completely corrupted and morally bankrupt by trip's end for your reading enjoyment - or vice-versa.
Now, if you will excuse me, I have an upper-bunk to sabotage and render un-usable.
