MJ and I leave for New Orleans tomorrow morning. Surprise!
The practical benefit to this spur-of-the-moment decision is that we can throw our dinghy and motor in the back of the van and deliver it to Bob without incurring the very expensive shipping charges to send it to him. Works great cuz we currently have no need of one and he doesn't have one, with Gort about to go back in the water.
See ya in New Orleans!
