Put Me On The EO List, Please!!

By Mary
Custom Smiley Today is my last day of work at the AVI for this season. Jason,the shift boss, asked me last night when my last day was. With a BIG grin I said tomorrow and I will be on the EO (early out) list. Being the nice guy that he is, he said he would put me on it then. They don't usually put you on the day before because it is a first come first serve type of list. That was very nice of him and I really appreciate it. To be very honest I hope I get out by 7 or 8 (I start at 5). I know that is being lazy, but I still have a lot to do and organize for my trip.

Today I sat down with the atlas and mapped out our route. I always make notes of the rest stops. I also like to figure about how far we will get each day. My goal on Tuesday is to make Tucumcari, NM which is about 700 miles. Since Rex and I were stuck there last fall because of the wind I know a nice bar and hotel we can stay at. Too bad Heather is pregnant. The entire trip is about 1800 miles.

Guess that's all I have time for today...gotta work on my packing!!
