I feel your pain Michelle!!! (RE: your Trail Journal Entry '4')
I have been a virtual basket-case all week, I sent out my pack via UPS last week and I know it arrived at the Hostel Monday. I am having seperation anxiety from it and having to deal with leaving my dog behind. We've been joined at the hip almost literally since I retired last January (15 months ago.). I cannot stand myself and just to try and calm down I am going to the movies this evening. Everyone else in the house has gone to work. It's just me, the dog and the kitty and believe me when I say that they are both I think wishing that I would get out of the house for a while so they can rest.
Yeah, I'm sure that I will also miss my wife too but that will be later in the trip.
You girls travel safely and carefully and I'll see you all down at the Hostel Sunday evening.
(48 hours from now I'll be sitting on the porch of the Hiker Hostel!!!) Yeah where is that dancin' banana?
