We’re exactly two months from being Adirondacked. And that, my friends, is moderately horrifying.
You know that point where you’re getting ready to embark on something huge, and no matter how much planning you have done, it feels like you will never have enough time? That’s now. April has dawned, and that leaves two months until Adirondack Bugout. I suppose the thing that is making this all feel so perilous is the fact that all of the big-ticket projects have to be done in the next eight weeks … and I am sweating it!
- April 20 – Call National Grid and have the meter removed
- April 24 – Drive to North Carolina to bring the Jeep home
- April 27 – Call to schedule the house demolition
- May 16 – Take a Jeep-load of stuff North
- May 17 – Return to NYC
- May 18 – Call National Grid to have new meter installed
- May 20 – Stop at RV dealer, head north, clear out house
- May 21 – House demolition begins
- May 23 – RV delivered and set up/Party with neighbors
- May 25 – Back to the city for a wedding (!)
- May 30 – Take another Jeep-load North
- May 31 – Return to NYC
- June 4 – Farewell party at our friends’ bar in NYC
- June 5 – Back to the Adirondacks … for good
Of course, in-between all of this, we still have our jobs to go to, I am rehearsing a musical (two, actually), and we have a whole house to cull and pack. And we’ll have a dog with us on all of these trips. Needless to say, I expect there will be some fairly hilarious and epic blog posting during the month of May.
As for that friend’s wedding that falls right in the middle of our plans – that marriage better last!
