For once Martin Vrooom is ready ahead of schedule. Maintenance is finished on Maxine and she is ready to be loaded in the trailer for the trip to Traverse City. Gary has all of the spare parts (which we hope we don’t need) tools and car stuff packed in the truck. I have plenty of pink & blue highlighters, red pens, extra batteries and all navigator tools in my rally box. Our “uniforms” of cargo shorts, red shirts and my special red shoes are in the luggage. Passports and all needed documents are ready for the trip. I even have my official travel food of peanut butter and crackers packed. All that remains is a final check and we will be ready to go.
