Traveling light


Fully loaded car

An interesting thing happened while packing for our return trip from my sabbatical. We knew we had bought a thing or two while in Gainesville. Then we started packing. The car-top carrier is from our trip to Gainesville a year ago. The luggage rack mounted at the back of the car is new. The things on the rack came with us. But, even with all that stuff moved to that rack, and even after shipping something like twelve boxes of books, the interior of our minivan is still just above the critical density required to initiate self-sustained nuclear fusion. Let's hope the transmission holds up...
