The countdown is becoming real. The Gorse Fox went up into the loft to retrieve the suitcases, today. This triggered a number of searches - wash bags, neck pillows, compression socks and so forth. In turn this triggered a trip to Chi to replenish lost items.
Spookily, one of the Gorse Fox's good friends (from Starfleet) flew out to BKK yesterday, but it doesn't look as if our paths will cross as he will be travelling on to Malaysia and Singapore. Now we just need Indonesia to extinguish the forest fires (or the wind to blow in the right direction).
