Well, decision finally made after much praying, writing down pros and cons, and much deliberating. I'm going back to Maine - to my husband, our business, and our beautiful grandchildren. Now the praying is for the travel back. We are weighing our options. Drive or fly. I'm having a hard time finding any flights that are non-stop so Mika won't be stuck in cargo twice. Not having much luck. My jeep is a '92 and pretty rusted out and will not pass inspection in Maine. We already have 2 vehicles in Maine and don't need this one. My youngest son has agreed reluctantly to travel with me if I need him. I offered a couple of scenarios - a plane ticket back or the jeep. He spontaneously said he'd take the jeep - but in the long run that might be more expensive - with gas money to get him back to Phoenix. We'll keep looking at options and praying. I still haven't set a date. Financially for our business, I should have left this weekend - but I had to give a notice at work. John is sending me traveling money. My car is registered in MN and is up in Jan - ooops. My insurance is late and canceled. My cell phone is late. Things will work out.

This is Pauline's sister-in-law. The 'Captain's sister' in North Carolina.

I heard from Pauline twice today, so the jeep is still on the road - so far, so good on that.

The last I heard from her was around 7pm and she was in Arkansas. She thought she might drive for a while yet though. As far as I know, she is on Route 40 and hopefully she will be here tomorrow night for dinner!!

It should take her about 12 hours of steady travel to get here from Russellville, AR. I will be calling her and will probably meet her just this side of Asheville, NC.

Will keep all posted for her
