T-120 hours and counting

Well, just under, since it’s now 10:59 and my flight leaves at 10:50 on Saturday. That will begin my journey to Niger. I have a lot of lab-related work to do. I need to get my ascending ramp simulations set up so that I can load them into the queue before I leave. I have to work on the regional ischemia paper. I need to print out the information on how I manage our lab server in case something goes wrong with it.

And then, there’s the Africa stuff. I have to finish my shopping list, go shopping, check inventory, recheck inventory, pack, probably deal with various problems packing, set everything in order at home and lab for a two week absence, arrange for transportation to the airport, pull a couple benjamins in cash, and send myself off.
