Tour Preparation

Since I'm the primary driver on this tour, I'm making sure we know where we're going. Today, I am plotting detailed maps to every stop along the way. The hard part will be choosing the stores where we will make "unannounced" drive-by signings. In other words, we'll stop at a store at whatever time we happen to be going by, charge in, sign all the books we authored, and ride off into the sunset.

But what if they don't have any of our books? That would be a bummer. So, I will be searching the Internet for stores that are near our route, calling them to see if they have some of our books, and asking them if it's okay if we stop by. So much for being unannounced.

That means my planning and map plotting will take quite a bit of time. And I don't even know how many "unannounced" restroom stops we're going to have to make. If there are too many, we'll have to start rationing the water.

Rationing the water? Why didn't my family ever think of that on long car trips? Oh... that may be 'cause I don't think...

If you're coming through NJ, and need some unscheduled stops, I can probably help...

Too bad the closest you'll be coming to my town would be Richmond. Otherwise I could probably help with "unscheduled" stops as well.
