Well, today I sold the VW, and I am incredibly happy about it. I’ve been very fortunate in meeting Keith Cox here in Bellingham. He owns a VW/Audi dealership and he has allowed me to have free use of his shop to get the van ready to sell. He is truly a great guy. My check from Bob (New Orleans) should be coming on Wednesday, and then it will officially be his. I’m planning to purchase plane tickets to Palau, and put the rest into a 3 or 6 month CD so that I’ll be able to purchase transportation when I’m done with my travels. For the next couple of days, I’ll be waxing, cleaning, polishing, etc, getting the VW ready for Bob’s cross-country trip back to LA. I’m anxious for all the adventures that lie ahead. Alaska is bound to be an adventure, and I can’t see how a summer in Palau can be that bad, especially in good company.
