Thank you so much to Reinadeluz for the detailed instructions to ARC, and to the rest of ya nutters for a chuckle about the sofas at ARC! :-) Definitely NEEDED the chuckle! Can't wait to collapse on raggedy sofas at ARC!

Furiously STILL packing with just 4 days to go, and I know I'm going to need 1 to 2 more suitcases!!!!!! USDA appointment tomorrow (Friday) morning at 9am. Tick/tapeworm treatment on Sunday at 8:20pm. Flight departs Dulles at 8:45pm on Monday. Will hopefully arrive to a beautiful Tuesday morning in London! :-) And may that cursed volcano in Iceland behave itself! :-P

My wife is getting a hire care to pick up me, dog, and luggage ... 5 pieces so far, but that's counting my saxophone. She's getting an estate car, which best as I can figure, is the US equivalent of a station wagon of some sort. So should be no problem, especially if we disassemble the dog crate once we get my dog!

Thanks, thanks, thanks, thanks!
