We are about 12 hours away from our family vacation to the Finger Lakes region of New York. The plan for tomorrownis to get on the road by 3:30 am and drive to Penn Yan to get the keys to the house and then head to the house we rented for the week. The drive is scheduled to take 11 1/2 hours. With the time change and stopping for the dogs and gas, we should get there around 5 pm.
Most of our stuff is packed save for the dogs things. Now we are relaxing, cooking dinner and getting ready for an early night. It has been since March of 2004 since we got in the car with the dogs and drove to our vacation destination. Porter wasn't born yet and Maxx was only 2 so it should be interesting. The advent of technology will make the drive interesting. Having our iPads and wireless access should add some interesting twists to the long drive.
Scattered rain showers today and tomorrow, but it should clear up as we get near NY. Monday's weather looks great, but they are calling for rain the rest of the week. Guess we will play it by ear to see when we go wine tasting, hiking or to museums in the area. Should be some good farmers markets as well.
