I'm running around the house trying to print out music and find my _I Promised Eli_ songbook (which I really need to update, darn it) and wishing I'd practiced more this last couple of weeks.
I have packed clothes and toiletries (in a new travelling kit that my brother gave me for my half-birthday, so I have my own soap and shampoo and so on all in one place; chortle) and a sleeping back and a bed (it's inflatable) and now I'm wishing I'd thought to stop in at AAA this afternoon and get a TripTik (except I don't know exactly where I'm going because I'm not sure yet where I'm crashing tomorrow night--but I should know by tomorrow morning). Maybe I'll have time to do it tomorrow; I think I need to go almost to AAA anyway in order to get on 1-75, so why not?
I still need to try to download something from my new Zoom H4 (also a half-birthday present) to make sure I can do it, before I get all the housefilk recordings stuck on its chip in limbo; I'm bringing my old iRiver as a backup and so I can listen to Common Ground on the way up in the hope that if I hear the 2 against 3 rhythm often enough I'll finally be able to play it that way. But if the Zoom works well I may quit bringing all the iRiver stuff.
Trip food; I need trip food. I wonder if I should put new strings on Pearl? Should I bring Lark *and* Pearl? Two instruments would be a bit much, surely? Considering that I also want to bring my music stand and my instrument stand.
I feel like a travelling circus, complete with mimmoths. And I'm sure I have forgotten something.
