Yup – the beast is pretty much packed and ready to go. Just have to add the food tomorrow morning. And – excitingly – I seem to have managed to pack for 4 days and come in under 30 pounds. If my weighing is correct, I’m topping out at about 27.5 pounds.
Yes – that’s great news!
And the weather still promises to be fine.
I’ve been thinking about the Auger Point for years. And now – finally! I have no fear of being disappointed. I know it will exceed my expectations, especially in the pain category. Ha!
I have lots of chocolate – that’s the important part. I may have skimped on clothing – one spare T-shirt – but hey: I have chocolate!
So – an early start tomorrow morning. The alarm will be set for 5.30 a.m. Abby is going to go off and play with her boyfriend for 4 days. She probably won’t want to come home.
The astounding news for the day” I found my Q-core pad. And where pray tell was it? Wrapped up in my sleeping bag. Why???
I can only think that as I was emptying my bag of non-essentials before my Switzerland trip last year that I stuck the pad in with the sleeping bag because that made sense and it was such a good place to put it that I would know where to find it!
So – signing off for at least 4 or 5 days. I plan to have tons of photos to post when I get back.
