Crossing the Desert

I leave this morning for lake Las Vegas.
As you read this, I'm probably in the act of dragging an enormous trailer across the desert, with all the tools and materials needed to haul, scrape, sand, and paint all three of my gondolas out there.

It's an ambitious plan - to haul and paint all three boats in four days.

Am I ready? I think so.

Am I psyched? Oh yeah!

Am I crazy? Well, there's never been any doubt about that.

Am I glad to be doing this in November rather than July? Hmmm, ya think?

Will I succeed? Only time will tell.

But if I don't, I'm sure I'll be able to come up with some lame excuse to justify it.

And of course, while I'm out there, I'll keep up my personal tradition of "supporting" Eric Johnson's Auld Dubliner there in the village. Anyone want to drive all the way out there to have a pint of Guinness?
