Only 28 days to go
August 1st, 2013
28 days to go – Weather: light drizzle in the morning & sunny in the afternoon, 9.2 km round trip.
Today I traded my bicycle for a backpack for my daily commute. It takes about 30 – 35 min. in the morning to get down the hill here in Hamilton to my place of work in the city core. Not a bad way to start the day but the walk home is always up hill. Crap.
Right now the pack is 15 lbs. all in but I plan to have it fully loaded with what I hope will be my final weight by next Friday. That is if we end up finding everything we are suppose to have. I expect it will end up being 20 – 25 lbs. One of my concerns is what to bring as a camera; point and shoot water-proof or my big digital SLR that weights a LOT more. I guess time will tell.
We have a lesson at MEC on Saturday that will instruct us on how to pack our bags so look for that advice and a big walk planned for Sunday.
Cheers for now and Buen Camino.
