Oh, here we go! It takes SO SO much to mount an expedition. Two people, both with their own small businesses. Lot's of plates in the air. I feel the sensible thing to do is to sew a new skirt for the trip. I mean, there are several hours before we have to get on the plane. (!!!???) The craft-over-committal-syndrome has clearly extended to BEFORE the trip, and not just to the airplane ride. Frightening!
