Checking on Timelines

My current best guesstimate, which is tracking closer to the original worst case scenario.

Getting dates to firmly lock in is difficult.  I am really uncomfortable with anything running into December – way too easy for timelines to blow it out by a few days, pushing the project straight to mid Jan.

This perpetual waiting (and uncertainty over dates particularly) is driving me crazy. Through work, I am used to managing projects many, many times the size of this one (10x – 80x) and having each stage nailed down to within a day, even from 6 months or more out.  This project is a completely different ball game.
