Busy kid-day.

Throw 'em off a cliff. It helps.

Zack went for a hang-gliding tandem flight today. Did well. Found out he can go with another instructor much closer; I'll call the other guy tomorrow. Mildly boring time for Gabe and I; we just hung out at the landing zone 'til he got down. Gabe was surprised that he got tired just waiting; I pointed out that while we were in the shade, we were still in the high desert, it was about 95F, and we were getting dehydrated just sitting there. So we got some lemonade and felt better.

Did some planning for the Big Coast-to-Coast drive. Have to leave Sunday if I'm to get across on time. Need to call everybody I can find of those I already know I want to visit and confirm they'll be there when I'm there.

And I've got something on my mind, and I can't seem to get started saying it. It's big, as per usual, but I've got to get started *some*how...
