One last trip around town for errands.
One last shower.
One last time being dressed up [for a wedding].
One last good, warm dinner.
One last round of visits with our family.
One last night in our cozy, snuggly bed.
For tomorrow we leave. We’re having one last breakfast with most of our family tomorrow, then we’re headin’ out for Springer Mt., GA. We’re hoping to hit the ground running after … one last lunch with Mike’s parents. (:
Everyone is asking if we’re ready. We’re as ready as we’re gonna be! We cannot wait to get on the trail..to get some miles under us, a few nights in the shelters, and days without showers. We can’t wait for oatmeal, rice, and bars. [We have way more food as you’ve seen…our family and sponsors have really taken care of us!] We can’t wait for the people we’re going to meet, the stories and experiences we’re going to have, and being away from everything. Here’s to the simple life.
Please keep us in your prayers as the days turn into weeks, and weeks turn into months. We’ll update on here and facebook as much as we can. We aren’t sure about how much service we’ll have up in the mountains but we know we’ll be able to update every time we come to a town [and probably at road crossings]…so stay tuned! AND…remember, we have the list of stops a few posts back, and since I know you’re just dying to send us stuff—print it off and keep it on your fridge—and send us lots of stuff!
Much thanks & love to our friends and families. Y’all have all been so supportive and we are forever grateful! (:
