One month to go!

Vic lap binderDana’s retirement ceremony happens on the tenth of April and the next day our Victory Lap begins. ONE MONTH FROM TODAY!

We’ve plotted our course and have reserved hotel rooms in all but three locations (still undecided on where to stay in New Orleans!). Disney Park Hopper passes have been acquired, and we’re making packing lists.

It’s a lot of information to keep track of, and it’s stuff we’ll need to access while we’re on the road where cell service may be spotty. Here’s the solution I’ve come up with:

The Victory Lap Binder!

Yeah, the name is underwhelming. I’m working on it. It’s a mini-binder with clear plastic pockets that hold all of our reservation confirmations, Disney stuff (Dis Jr character breakfast, et al), and notes about each stop. So, sharing a pocket with our hotel info in Amarillo is a reminder that we want to go to Cadillac Ranch and that Big Texan restaurant that has 72-oz steaks. We’ll keep this with us and as we go we’ll replace the hotel confirmations with postcards and brochures from cheesy landmarks.

It’s getting real!
