Well, all good things must come to an end. In this case, it is the end of a sabbatical. Most of the pain of packing is done -- the minivan is as dense as a neutron star. Now comes the drive from Gainesville to Seattle, with a stop in Montreal for a conference. Expect intermittent blogging, hopefully without any stories about en route transmission rebuilds (that was part of the trip at the start of the sabbatical; Chrysler transmissions leave a bit to be desired).
