Hat & gloves? check
Skye's blankie? check
Umpteen cans of food? check
My itinerary spreadsheet? double check
Well, it looks like I'm ready to set off. First stop my mum's house so I can squeeze in a few hours at the Guide Dogs centre on Saturday then it's Edinburgh for a couple of nights.
Google maps estimates that I'm going to do 1,700 miles and it will take over 36 hours of driving. Wish me luck!
