Countdown: 6 Days

6 days to go and I’m starting to feel how short that is!

I practiced setting up my tent again today.  It’s pretty easy but I’m not sure I’m up to the review standards yet (5-10 minutes by myself might be a little out of my reach).  Maybe I should have timed myself!  I also learned how to use the guy-lines, but found out that they didn’t actually give me enough lines and stakes for all of the hook-ins: shopping list!  Now packing up the tent is a whole other creature, but I did it! by myself! and it fit back into the bag neatly! Yay!

I also spent the morning examining maps of the airports I’ll be travelling through.  My only question now: why oh why did I choose the early morning flight?  It sounded like a great deal until I realized how early I’m going to have to get up to get there. Hello 4:30 a.m.!

Stay tuned for updates on inevitable clothing dilemmas, last-minute shopping lists, and how in the world I fit everything I need into my luggage!
