Buckingham – The first day of the rest of Mark’s life – he says that he will be spending more time with me (that’s me to the right). We run every morning, this morning it was Lake Mohegan, which is a great place to start the day. HeĀ is training for some race in South Carolina so that means longer runs every day – no problem for a dalmatian.

In two weeks we embark on the trek – surely the original settlers in covered wagons didn’t have to go through so much preparation? For certain they didn’t have to consider so much paperwork – even for me apparently. Afterall we are only getting in a car and travelling @7,000 miles. Anyway I am looking forward to hitting the beach at Kaiwah Island – our first major stop – but before then we have a house to pack!


New beginnings

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover” Mark Twain
