All electronic and paper submissions made and mailed. My car insurance cards arrived. It's time to chase some real rarities in New Jersey--Northern Lapwing, Pink-footed Goose and Barnacle Goose. On Friday, January 18, just before leaving I got a call from Medicare/SS. We got some errors in my submission corrected to my benefit. I'm crossing my fingers as I leave town.
It is 54F as I start driving north on I71 to head to New Jersey via I70 and the PA Turnpike. I stay the night at Exit 226, Carlisle. On my way, I get 38.6 mpg (maximum average). That's excellent. I need to be back by January 24 for a furnace inspection, and to get ready to leave for the Chicago area to visit my cousins Jim and Larry. More about that later.
