We’ve been reading. There are books; we have three because we wouldn’t want to miss anything. I worry, “What if we get somewhere and need a spoon and don’t have one? OMG.” But not to minimize, they are good books. Also a friend of a friend, named Georgette, has been kind enough to tell us about her pilgrimage and to send us a written account. She had some great tips.
So, at one week out, I (Connie) am going through my pack again and making changes. “What was I thinking taking a sleeveless shirt.” I have not experienced 60 degrees for awhile but I’d probably think a down jacket was warranted. My goal is a maximum of 16 pounds. I am pretty close. I was at 13.9 last week but have since added important items. Now I’m scared to weigh in. I want everything I have packed. Hmmm……
Today I had my last chiropractor appointment and I have yoga tonight. I’m walking with an old vertebrae but doing the best preventive care I can think to do. Nonetheless, as I hike with a pack, I often imagine (I hope it is only my imagination) my vertebrae compressing. I may return from this journey as a short old woman. Whose big idea was this anyway? See next post for the answer.
One thought on “What to take?”
Connie: Thank you so much for including me on this journey. You did much better in packing than I. My pack was always at least 22 pounds with 1.5 pounds of vitamins and supplements starting out. I am so excited to “walk” with you and please know I will be with you in spirit, every step of the way. Georgette
