The list of all I have to do keeps getting longer. I haven't been hiking because of some funky foot injury over a month ago, so as my muscles turn to jelly and my foot aches the fear grows. I still have gear decisions to make although my big 3: tent, pack and sleeping bag are hopefully finalized. I haven't made an itinerary or bought plane tickets, I don't know how many resupply boxes I'm going to make yet, let alone what will be in them and I have a nice shiny package of unopened maps staring at me next to an empty GPS. So here's to no more procrastinating and a very slow start to New Mexico. A huge part of thru hikes is getting over the craziness of your own mind, and I know I want this. Things will fall into place and I've been quizzing plenty of great resources (Shroomer and Why Not you guys are amazing) so its time to kick it into high gear and put it all together!
|I love this peanut but no matter how small she tries to be I'm pretty sure she won't fit into my backpack...|
|these shiny neatly packed maps are mocking me, where to even start!|
|at least I get pretty spring time to inspire me and make it even harder to sit indoors and plan|
|even Reno has gorgeous springtime (along with some wonderful people!)|
|I'm already missing all the vegetables|
