and I'm off....

Tomorrow (Wednsday) I'll be leaving on my little trek/adventure/getaway/skills practice/clear my head trip. The ALICE pack is fully loaded with gear, minimal food, and 8 canteens and one camelback of water, weighing in at a total of 74.2 pounds. I'm glad I eliminated a few things! LOL It coulda been well over 85.
As if right now, the forecast calls for warm and sunny tomorrow, upper 70's Thursday, and upper 60's on Friday with a chance of rain. My plan is for tomorrow afternoon through Friday evening but if the weather agrees and I'm doing fine, I may just extend it to Saturday morning.
I'm pretty excited about going, so of course everything is ready and stacked, including clothes like I'm some kid hyped up to head off to summer camp. The camera has fresh batteries and a spare set, and I have a notebook & pen with me to take notes the whole time. I'm hoping this trip not only does wonders for me, but makes for a pretty interesting blog post.
'talk to ya when I get back!
