this is more emotional than i thought it would be

so this is my last weekend in the valley, i head down to nyc tomorrow to say goodbye to my sister and fly out of laguardia on wednesday.  i spent the past few days with my rugby team, and am having a hard time saying goodbye!  as much planning and anticipating that i have been doing for this trip, i didn't really take into account how much i will miss all my amazing friends up here.  i am so lucky to have been a part of the springfield rugby team, and made the best friends anyone could ask for.  i am still so super stoked to start walking,  3 more days!  i love everyone up here, and will miss them and think about them so so much!!!!

2 weeks to go!

So our bags are packed, and we are ready to go.  We have two weeks till we leave on a jet plane for good ol' Georgia and start our expedition in the wilderness.  I'm re-reading "A Walk in the Woods" by Bil Bryson, just to gear up and get my head in the game...and if they can do it, so can we.  Here we go!
