preRA: 20 Days and Counting

Snow clearing on SR20 in Washington is going faster than I figured – they’ve only got 7 or 8 miles left now. I’m encouraged that we’ll be able to take that route.  The crews are keeping a dandy website to show the progress:

Our start date approaches, only 20 days off now.  As I’ve already said,

“We are rapidly losing our opportunities to abandon this lunatic plan.”

To which Jack has most recently replied,

(Yes, but) “our chances to prove our lunacy abound.”

To which Frank has replied,


“I’ve had my lunatic days; however, this is my first attempt at 90 consecutive lunatic days.”
