Jay getting amped for a ski

Journal Entry

Palm springs in one week!!!!aaaheeeeeeee!!!Guess we're just jumping into this, Jay's near obsessive cross country skiing and dedicated morning weight training will have definitely paid off. My mini stint of masters swimming kept me feeling energized through my second long fort st john winter. We'll leave our jobs behind for 6 months of pure and unbelievable walking. Shoes are broken in, first aid kit loaded, although having barely snuck it into my pack after a scrupulous ounce by ounce process. We have also both successfully packed under 15 lbs base weight and I personally feel great about loading jay down with most of everything else. Family time in kelowna was refreshing, and provided a healthy amount of space to ensure that I in fact would have likely died crying if I had decided to stay home and let Jay go alone.

Here's to all of the adventure ahead, and to taking deep breaths.
