Tomorrow I have to give back my computer to work, so this will be my last post stateside, as they used to say (or maybe they just said that on TV).
If all goes right, I have a 10.5 hour flight from LAX to Amsterdam, a 2.5 hour layover, and then an 8.5 hour flight to Mt. Kilimanjaro. All I can say is, thank god for Ambien.
Final to do list:
My goal was for my pack to be fewer than 28 lbs (13 kilos) but I was not successful and I’m a little nervous about carrying around that large a percentage of my body weight. I suspect I’ll shed a fair amount as I go, but I was just too uncertain about too many things that I decided to bring now, and chuck out later.
Well, that’s all for now kiddies.
Off to live life or die trying (don’t worry, my mother isn’t actually reading this blog)
See you on the other side!
