Our adventure begins before dawn. Everything we still own that we are not taking on the airplane tomorrow is now packed away in our storage unit. (We also loaned our car to our son and daughter-in-law.) At 5:00 a.m. the motel shuttle will take us to the airport, and we will fly the first leg of our trip: Portland, Oregon, to Boston, Massachusetts. This is the trip we have spent years waiting for, the one that will eventually take us to Israel.
