I love traveling, but I'm not sure I actually enjoy the process of packing and unpacking and then packing and unpacking again. It's time consuming, and a major bore. Even though I have tried to limit what I am taking, in an effort to simplify things, the car still seems to get over-filled, which is the down-side of driving rather than flying to a destination. However, having mobility once there is the trade-off, I suppose. And, as you all know, I love my independence!!
I head off tomorrow on my road trip! I'm taking my time, so I will be doing the drive in 2 days, rather than in 1 mind-numbing day. I gave up on that many years ago. Am hoping that being sequestered in my car, with no distractions other than driving (don't worry Dad!), I'll get the final pages of the script memorized. Because of the extremely short rehearsal period, and my large part, I decided I needed to be "off-book" (as we say) before the 1st rehearsal. We shall see. Problem is, there are 6 different versions and I started by memorizing almost half of one version, until I discovered we'd be using another text, so ended up learning the other half in the other version. I'm not re-memorizing the first half, so that's that. They will have to deal with it. Age has priority, and the other 3 characters are young-uns, so they will have to adapt. Easier for them, anyway. Age does have it's usefulness.
Off to bed, so I can get an early start.
See you somewhere between here and there.
