Holding Pattern

I was planning to hit the road this morning to drive to Seattle. I've reserved a 4'X 8' U-Haul trailer that I was to pick up on Wednesday and fill with the remainder of our stored possessions, which I would then haul back to Arkansas. A couple of weeks ago, I bought a '92 Ford Ranger from my grandfather. It had sat unused in his field for years, and I've spent the last week getting it road-worthy in anticipation of this journey.

Arkansas has proved an officious state. The transfer of ownership required my grand-father to sign his name six times. This took him several minutes and proved quite taxing for him. The day before yesterday, his health started a very rapid deterioration. He's in hospital now, and my mother just called to tell me that he probably won't last the morning.

If I leave now and he dies I will miss his funeral. I don't want that, so I'm waiting.
