Hello everyone, Elisa and I are in route to GA. We will start hiking tomorrow. It has been a hectic week pulling all the ends together for this trip. I made a short video about what I have packed in my drop boxes, got it to my computer, and couldn't seem to get it downloaded to the blog. Technical issues to look forward to once I get home, I guess. I will be taking lots of pictures on a camera that I will download when I am home in September. I will also be taking photos from my phone which I will be able to share along the way.
I had some great opportunities this last week to see many of my friends, and got lots of happy Bon voyage wishes. Thanks everyone!
I am a little frustrated right now with my pack weight. I am at about 35.5lbs without water (1 liter of water= 2 lbs). I was hoping to be down to 30 lbs. I will make some adjustments tonight and get a final pack weight.
I guess when you aren't planning to stop hiking for 6 months, extras end up getting added to the pack. I am trying to make my "toss" choices wisely.
Here is our home for tonight...
