The closer we got to the little Northern Mediterranean micro-climate known as Birch Bay yesterday, the rainier it got. Saturday's traffic on I-5 was nothing to celebrate either but here we are.
It's time to get serious about packing for our upcoming trip to Thailand - that couple with the rain make for the itchy feet.
We fly from SEA Friday and will meet Kathy's brother Tom and sister-in-law Ellyn along the way. We're looking forward to returning to Bangkok and showing them around, but we'll all be on new territory in Chiang Mai and Phuket.
We have two new computers in our arsenal, an Asus-made ZT Affinity 7509Ma Desktop, and a Toshiba NB305 Netbook, to which we've added a 2GB memory module. This will be our new travel computer, now that our six-year-old Dell mini finally bit the dust, and we're looking forward to trying it out on its first road trip.
