Get the new van checked out and inspected.
Arrange for the clearing on my property to get mowed so it will still be a clearing when I get back.
Save a ton of money (not looking too good on that front).
Plan our route out west, and get in touch with friends or family that we may try to stay with.
Consolidate all my music on the laptop so we can replenish our iPods while we are on the road.
Do something about the mullet that is growing down my neck.
and the list continues...
