Trading Snow Storms for Shamals


I got to go snow-hiking with a Yeti!

I got to go snow-hiking with a Yeti!

Well, I think everything is packed.
A few last minute provisions to be gathered but, so long as I am sticking to conventional means of travel, ie. airplane, I will do my best to suffice with carry-on(s).

Just yesterday I was schooled in the realm of efficiency packing when Neon showed up with an anti-space (though not anti-gravity) sealed suitcase. The 56 lb carry-on was packed, literally, to the gill; with months of food and basics. Between the likes of she, MegaTex, and the many other hearty souls setting out soon, the CDT is gonna see some awesome feet this season.

Which leaves me feeling silly for fretting over what footwear to bring on my own trip [starting tomorrow]. Though I did end up with little less than a week to plan. But honestly, what does one wear in Saudi Arabia?
Chacos.
I hope.

I like Doug’s travel checklist. We ran through it as I left their house after Delicious Dinner tonight:

“Passport?”
“Yup.”
“Have fun.”

When the world around you begins to close in and overwhelm, elbow out breathing space. If it’s a 5 minute walk around the block, a trip to the Library, a weekend dash to someplace 9 hours away, a jump to elsewhere in the world, or a trek through the Wilderness; if it meets your style, need, and means, make it yours.
Live it. Love it. It’s yours!
