Getting Ready For the Big Trip

-17 °C

Friday October 24th, 2008
Well, we only have 96 more days to go! I think we have gotten all the shots we are going to be getting before we leave. We have all had our Yellow Fever shots, and our first two Hepititis shots. Kaleb and Emily get their last Hep A shot in 5 months, and the rest of us get the last of the Twinrix shot in 6 months. I am trying to get everyone to get a flu shot, but no one seems too interested. I think I might pull rank and just take them. It would be a shame to get to Tanzania and have caught the flu from the recycled air on the plane.
I think I have managed to get everyone muted coloured clothes for the trip. Now I think I just need to think of footwear, and I better get on it quick, as sandles are hard to find in November in Alberta!
The end November will bring our final payment for the trip, then Christmas in December, then poof end of January we are gone. Some days 96 days seems like a long time to wait, then at other times, I can't get my head wrapped around it!
