Time frame somewhere in May. This will be the first van trip in about three years. Too long, but when I was unemployed I couldn't consider such a trip.
I am looking forward to two things. One is the trip itself, the other is that I have decided that after we return from this trip it will finally again be new kitten time. It will be difficult to replace Ashley though. She was a very special kitten I got at a particular point in my life, but all things end, and life must go on.
