Well, a little sad news to report today. I tried to get a health certificate for my SD (since we're traveling over state lines), and we can't get it granted. He's been having some breathing issues this Fall. The vet says it's allergies,and it should clear up on it's own. To be safe, he doesn't suggest he travel any time soon. Breathing issues and airplanes aren't a good idea for dogs. This will be the first time I've been away from him that long. I toyed with the idea of cancelling, but everything is paid for. I'm going to have to just be really careful and accept help from family members.

On the other hand, this might be a blessing in disguise. He's a black dog and hard to see in thick crowds. The crowds are going to be much heavier than we are used to in our September trips. Even with light crowds, he was a magnet for careless people stepping on his feet and tail.

So please keep a good thought for my little man. There's a slight chance he'll get better really fast. If he can by the end of next week, he'll be able to come.

I'm sorry, our ressie is only for 2. I think my friend would be a bit upset if I brought a few dozen of my DIS friends. At least we'll hang out at Trader Sams! I've never been, and I hear it's a lot of fun! I'm a bit surprised there aren't more people jumping into meets in December.

ONLY 3 WEEKS TO GO!!
I wasn't serious about joining you......lol I don't tend to invite myself to things Club 33 is a dream for me too......if it's meant to be....I'll go someday, otherwise I'm surely not going to let that make or break my spirit or dreams!!

I hope we get a few more to join us, but if it's just us, that's fine too!! Looking forward to it and checking out Trader Sam's and their fun drinks!!

Oh, I'm so sorry about having to leave your dog at home. I imagine you will feel a bit "naked" not having him with you. Hope he gets better!!

Haha, I knew you were kidding. My dry humor doesn't translate well to discussion boards.

I'll absolutely feel odd without him, but I'm with you, I hope he gets better soon.

Do you know if Trader Sam's has non-alcoholic drinks? I don't drink, but I still want to hang out.

I'm sure they have both.....most lounges would offer non-alcoholic options.

Can't wait for your trip to start! I moved to Culver City from Central Oregon about 4 months ago and pass the sign to the Museum of Tolerance every day on my way home from work. I need to share a photo with you (which I'll try to take tomorrow) that really cracks me up whenever I see that sign.

Hope you have a fun trip - it's great that you are getting a chance to take your daughter, mom and meet up with friends/family. I really hope your SD gets to feeling better and passes the health certificate so you can take him with you.

Thank you!

Have you been to the museum yet? I hear it's quite good.

I haven't spent much time in Central Oregon, but DD has been a few times. Very different from where we're from in California, but I'm really starting to love the quiet!

I've now officially done everything I can do in advance other than pack! I purchased tickets online for MoT and LACMA. Good thing I decided to do that since they are booking up fast. We had to swap days for the museums because MoT was already booked for the day we intended. So now we will go to MoT on the 7th and LACMA on the 6th. The groceries are ordered too. Now it's just a matter of waiting another 16 days to get on the plane!

I'll be coming back to surgery and new treatment plans since the current course isn't working. With all of the unfortunate medical news I've been receiving over the last few weeks, it's good to have the Disney distraction.

When I first started planning, I considered it an ultimate Christmas Adventure simply because I would be able to go after a long hiatis. Looking at all of the additions to the trip, I think it's actually going to live up to its name. Thanks again for following along. It's been fun to document the journey.

I'm sorry your current treatments aren't working.......that I imagine can be very disheartening.....I'm glad you have this trip to help keep your spirits up.

Ok, I know what the LACMA is but what is MoT?? Glad you had the flexibility to change days around.

It is. Yesterday I had a nice big pitty party, but decided not to stay in that negative space. Today I bought the museum tickets, read Disney blog, and generally focused on the good things in life.

MoT is Museum of Tolerance (http://www.museumoftolerance.com/). DD has wanted to go for a long time, and we finally have time this trip.

The museum looks interesting! We had to drop out our museum, LaBrea Tar Pits day......one of these times, I'm going to get to those, Universal City Walk and San Diego.

Will keep you in my prayers.....just keep smiling and stay positive!!

Wow! I can't believe it - we get on a plane in 9 DAYS!!! We're looking forward to every single day of this trip. Time to amp up the Disney-movie-watching to get us in the mood!

Honestly, I can't find a single picture of me! DD got on me about that and has insisted I rectify the situation on this trip. My name is Carrie, and I'll be in a Deckert's scooter. I have curly hair and glasses. I'll be the one looking around like I'm lost. You're right - having names does help. Without it, I can just picture you going table to table saying "Escape2Disney? Escape2Disney?"

Well you've seen pics of me in my trip report so you'll spot me first (probably)......lol My hair is pretty short now.....that's the only difference. I'm looking forward to meeting you in person Carrie!! I'm hoping Sherry will be able to join us too since she'll be there during that time!!
