I've intercepted half the mail I'm expecting, and I should be set to hit the Road Monday or Tuesday. Tomorrow I'll spend mending my gear. Stripping down my pack and checking all the pins and straps, fixing whats broke and making repairs where they're needed. I'll also be caching my cold weather gear here. Wool socks and Carhartt coats will do me no good where I'm going. And I'm very ok with that.
I'm gonna miss the hell outta my friends here, but it's nearly that time. Maybe I'll see them again soon...maybe not.
