On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday we will be covering lots of miles on rough dirt roads in the middle of summer with hot clothes, minimal food, a hefty supply of mosquitos, blisters, and less-than-desirable latrine facilities.
Actually, I really am excited for the experience. A few of the great things that will come with the trek are:
*Spending time with some amazing friends and kids
*Gettin' me some good hill workouts.
*No grocery expenses for three days.
*NO CELL PHONE!!!!
*A greater sense of heritage.
*A renewed appreciation for the simple things in life such as frozen pizzas, cold Mountain Dew, a soft mattress, getting up at night to comfort a child who just had a nightmare, toilets, and air conditioning.
