so the gear is just about done, just need to put some of it in the resupply boxes. i've been meaning to figure out my base pack weight, but keep getting distracted, so that will have to wait for another day. things are looking great though, the weather is starting to warm up, which means that snow is melting in the mountains.
we haven't been out training as much as we would like to be, there just seems to be so much else going on between packing, river rafting, and getting ready to leave for 5 months, there hasn't really been a lot of time to go out hiking, well actually we just haven't made it a priority and figured that it is more important to have food and gear for the trip and that we will be able to get in hiking shape on the trip.
so, much like this little blog entry, my mind seems to be all over the place. i find it hard to keep planning and looking over maps, etc., i really just want to be on the trail and get this adventure started. we have been asked the question, "are you getting excited for your trip?" about a million times and no offense to those of you who have asked it, but that question alone makes me want to head off into the wild and away from people for awhile. we love you though and are excited to share this journey with you.
alright, time to go make wife some pancakes.
