As usual…despite rigorously planning this trip for the past six months…getting pretty much everything in place at least a couple of months ago (or so I thought)…I’ve still been spending the past few weeks going seemingly non-stop to tie up all of the loose ends. Most of this has been technology-related…setting up this blog…buying a very cool new lens for my camera (a last-minute decision) and spending time beginning to get used to what it can do…and re-learning how to use my camcorder. And then there are the last-minute errands. Ay yay yay!
So…word to the wise…little adventures that have a lot of moving parts, take a lot more time than you would think to plan and prepare for…so…start as early as you can, and keep working the problems until you get everything in place, as best as possible. Once you are on your way…you’ll be glad you did.
It’s Friday, and about 9pm here. I’m basically all packed and ready to hit the hay, before my 4am start tomorrow. I’ll be in Roanoke, VA, tomorrow night, with no plan other than to get an early start on Sunday, with the hope of getting to Nashville by early afternoon.
So, without further adieu, I’m going to leave you with this great Toni Price tune…Get The Hell Out Of Dodge .
Catch up with y’all on the trail!
