I'm sure you and Jim are going to have some computer withdrawal anxiety when you're out of range. And thank goodness you will be out of range a lot of times because that is the only way we can ever guarantee that you will have a little bit of vacation time!

BTW, the information and links you posted here will be well  used by one particular  "tavlet" member when  offering  support  needed in specific areas.

I'm sure Nellie will will enjoy having more of your attention because  you will be freed up from computers and telephones!!!  Soak in all of the beauty Nature has to offer as you embark on this wonderful road trip.  Safe travels

Mucho  lovo 😉🥰♥️
