Howdy friends and family. Caboose here. Well, if you're a friend of mine on Facebook, you know that I have Big News to announce today. Sorry to disappoint -- Caboose & Upstate are not having a baby. [Well, not right now anyway.] I'm heading back to the trail! Before you go judging me, thinking, "that girl is crazy & can't make up her mind" let me explain. My plan is to leave next weekend - driving old, faithful Edmund the 1,157ish miles to Grafton Notch, Maine to see the boys & spend the last 2 - 2.5 weeks with them as their "road side assistance." (: I will be driving the "assistance vehicle" - carrying the boys gear [and mine ... in case I end up hiking any], tons and tons of food, emergency [in case I get stuck] stuff, lots of books, and plenty of clothes and blankets. Upstate & I have gone through Maine on a map and tentatively planned out where I will meet them each day. While I've enjoyed my time at home, I am very much looking forward to being back with Mike - 6 weeks apart will have been a very, very long time away & finishing the adventure with Team Monkey's Inc. (:
If you are interested in sending baked goods [- or any food really] with me to fatten the boys up, please let me know! [Letters are also excellent!] I'll be making rounds in Fountain Inn, Simpsonville, and Greenville next week making the necessary preparations for the long journey North, so I can stop by & pick it up - or I'll be at the Martin's house until I leave, so you can bring it by! (: Stay tuned & please say a prayer for safety as I'm making this drive!
