For the past week every surface in our condo has been covered with hiking/camping/climbing gear. Laura had her room and the living room and Dan took over the dining room, den, our bedroom, the front hall and any other space he could find. He likes to see everything before he packs. The puppies had problems finding a space to lie down and sleep. Unfortunately, a lot of the mess is still here but I will deal with that over the next few days.
On Saturday I drove Dan and Laura to the airport to catch a 1:20 a.m. flight to Hong Kong. The adventure has begun.
