My last post from home. The next one is on the trail!

The time is finally here and reality is setting in.  This is really happening!  

I will be carrying three very important items for encouragement. First, a small coin that my wife gave me titled “Never Alone”.  Second, a fortune that I got from a cookie over the summer. It reads, “Use your abilities at this time to stay focused on your goal. You will succeed.” And lastly, a necklace of Saint Christopher that was given to me by a dear friend. While these three items total no more than 1 ounce of weight, they hold the most value of what I will carry. I’m not a religious man but I am spiritual. These are symbols of love, encouragement, and protection… very powerful, and greatly appreciated!!!

On to one last thing. I’ve never been a fan of posting selfie’s on social media. But in this case, I need to make an exception.  When I look back at this journey, I’ll need to see the before, during, and after pictures of myself. 

I’m going to resist the urge to shave, or cut my hair. Yeah, we’ll see how long that lasts 🤓. 

See you on the trail!!!!!
