I'm starting this topic in order to keep my motivation up. My situation is not as bad as last year- Timex actually drives now. He's been on the road as my daily driver for over a month, made some trips in the 100-mile-each-way range with no real problems, and I'm doing little things almost every day it seems.
So... mostly I'll be listing what I've done each day (or at least each day that I do something) and what I expect to get done the next day (or at least in the near future). In the list below, high-priority tasks need to be completed for me to even attend the ECI. Medium-priority tasks should be completed for my greater enjoyment while at the ECI. Low-priority tasks can be completed because I'm broke, have the supplies, and want to do something
constructive that day....
