Thus, the Spokane trip has been cancelled. My friend will be coming out to Seattle (by car; yay!) instead. We're still debating the merits of Amtrak for the trip out to NH. We'll probably fly, but may adjust our trip out slightly later, to be after 9/11, if it looks like security might ease up then.
However, there will be no trip down to California later this month. I have not bought tix for the T-day-Winter Solstice return to Seattle, and unless things change a whole lot with airport security, I'm not going to. We'll worry about February tix for the Mouse after the New Year.
The company picnic was a blast. We took Teddy on the carousel which was just slightly more positive about than neutral. He had a lot of fun running down the paths at the zoo. We'll still be car camping the 19th/20th.
