100 days until we board our flight to Tanzania. When I first started talking about this (this year, not to be confused with the 270,238,296 other times discussed previously), I promised I’d blog about the preparation. Ummmm. Well, I have 100 days worth of posts right? I mean, easily! So, let the countdown begin… Officially. Again. And stop freaking out about TOMORROW = double digit countdown!!! O.M.G.!!
Things to be covered in the next 100 days:
- Who we selected and why (we think why, can’t really report on that until AFTER)
- What we’re packing
- What we’re renting
- How we’re training
- And, a recap on how we got here (flights, booking, plans, etc.)
So, immediate freakout session includes: haven’t done a thing about this trip lately because have been focused on Girl’s Adventure Trip 2013 (5 14ers! FIVE!! In 3 days of hiking) plus a girlfriend’s fun trip to Portland. Both trips over the period of the last 12 days with a whopping 36 hours at home.
So, now I have time to focus on Kili. Well, that and the family, who apparently need food (“can someone COOK a meal here?”) and stuff (posters and checks for tests and did I mention FOOD?) and things like math homework checked and rides to/from and from/to!
