Maine in the mornin’

I am starting at Mt. Katahdin at Baxter State Park in a few days! Today I moved the last of my belongings into the garage at my Dads house and vacuumed up the dust bunnies from under my bed in my apartment, I’m all set to go. I just ate a giant pizza with my two buddies Laura and Nathan. Gonna miss those two.

I have almost everything I need for my trip now, just food left to buy for my first 10 days. I’m a tad worried that my pack will be too heavy. Just last week it seemed to still be light and have room in it, but tonight it looks really stuffed and over filled and heavy, that’s without my food or water! Well… I’m going to say it… I’m NERVOUS!!!! This is probably the craziest thing I’ve ever done, and maybe that I’ll ever do.

Laura just checked the weather… looks like rain on Sunday and Monday… 45-50mm!! (Hope there’s room in the shelter that night)

Keep me in your prayers!!  🙂

Here I go!

    • Hi Julia! I’m really happy for you that you are accomplishing your dream. More people should be doing what you’re doing. I felt nervous too when I left Toronto to do my centennial bike trip as I was leaving everyone and everything I knew. I even cried at the airport. But I was to join a big group and did make friends. I was really glad I’d done it later. I’m praying for you and hope you’ll be with people often and that the Lord will bless you in amazing ways!

  1. I really think that this is probably not the craziest thing you will ever do, but it might be one of the longest. I guarantee you more crazy stuff to come. I will bet you a new pair of hiking boots (or maybe flip-flops) that there will be crazier things.
