Well, it's hard to believe that 24 hours from now Lynne and I will be sitting in the Meadowlands Community Center listening to Dave Benson speaking about "Owls of the North." It seemed like February would never get here when I registered for the Sax-Zim Festival of Birds back in November. Now the day is almost here and I'm almost ready. I picked up the Toyota Sienna from my local Enterprise rental this evening, my field guides are all together in a bag, bins and scope ready to go, organized some knitting projects to take along, and the spousal unit has been briefed in the fundamentals of filling the birdfeeders and feeding the guppies and goldfish. I'm planning to pick up Lynne at her place tomorrow morning around 10 AM and then we're off to the great white north country!
And even though the weekend will go incredibly fast, coming home on Sunday won't be too disappointing because we're going to take a little detour and visit Deb too! I'm so excited about getting to meet two of my blogging friends for the first time this weekend.
Lynne said she's bringing her laptop along, and hopefully the motel we're staying at will have a wireless connection so she can do a post while we're in Duluth. Be sure to check in for stories and pictures of our fun birding weekend.
