Pre-trip notes

Pre-trip notes

I'm writing this from the waiting room of Mitchum Tire here in
Springfield, waiting for a tire to get fixed. I've been doing a lot of
pre-trip prep work: finding a house-sitter, cleaning the house and car,
writing a packing checklist and more. I noticed that I haven't done one
fundamental thing–make a BloggerCon checklist. Let's take a moment and
write one now.

–Write interview questions.

–Install aggregator software for Andrew's Day 2 session
–Send email to family and friends about the trip, asking them to follow
–Verify my Radio install one more time and then *don't touch it*.

With the list written online, expect it to be edited as I go. Later,
I'll add stuff for the car, compatible iTrip stations, music take take
on the iPod (who thought 10GB would not be enough?) and food to take for
snaks along the way.

Called my insurance agent and got roadside assistance for the car. $5.00 every six months is *cheap*.
