All the travel plans are coming together. Tickets are purchased, layout of the items to pack has begun, extra rain gear is purchased, new trail runners are procured, Euros are received and electric adapter is located.
Although departure is less than a week away, I feel that I have a lot of time. Not the case. I completed a prep hike of about fourteen miles and felt very good after. I believe that my stamina is OK. Time or trek will tell. Planning to do some short hikes and one long one before departure.
Experiencing a bit of dissonance. A lot going on here; I will miss Jim’s departure for his senior year at Penn State and I will miss Tina. Emma has departed back to Vietnam via England and has arrived safely. The dissonance may also be due to my facing an unknown adventure.
I will make a post prior to departure.
