The final countdown

Well, with five days to go before our thru-hike begins Leila is in Maine and I’m in Connecticut and we’re finally starting to cross our t’s and dot our i’s, as it were. This week I got a haircut, delivered my fuzzy companion to her vacation digs, made some final repairs, tweaks and changes to my gear, made a tyvek ground sheet for my tent, washed and dried my sleeping bag to return it to full loft, fixed a hole in my tent, and did the kind of life stuff you have to do when you’re preparing to travel for six months. Here are some photos of the preparations. Enough anticipation! I just want to get there.
