By that time, we will have paid off our personal loan (actually around the start of February 2009 assuming we don’t make any extra payments), so we’ll have an extra $250 a fortnight. Also by this time Caleb will be nearly three years old, and hopefully using the toilet. By this time I also may be pregnant again, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.
The options are as follows: fly into LA, stay a night there to get our bearings, and hire a car to sightsee along the way to Wisconsin (and visit a few people along the way, only I don’t remember if anyone other than Renee & Darin or Rachel & Josh are really “on the way”); fly directly into Minneapolis and still hire a car so we can drive around a little while we’re there (say, to visit Northie in southern Minnesota, Scott, Pam, and others in the Twin Cities area, Alex in Manitoba, Opie in Illinois with a stop off in Madison to see Beth & Josh & Ava, and who knows where else, depending how far we’re prepared to drive); do a round-the-world trip and stop off in London to visit Dave & Lynelle (who are leaving Adelaide tomorrow to go to the UK for several years). Depends what’s cheapest.
So Pam, if you’re reading this, keep New Year’s Eve that year free. 😉
