You’d think after a year and a half of waiting to go on the Machu Picchu trip I won in the winter of 2009 and the amount of hiking I do that I’d be SUPER PREPPED with my packing and ready to go for what will in all likelihood be the most awesome hike I’ve ever done in my life. Well, you’d be wrong.
I leave in 10 min for the airport and just finished packing. Fingers crossed I didn’t forget anything important (I checked, my passport is not expired, so we won’t have John and Elisa wedding 2009 part deux.) Because Paul is now in med school and can’t take the time off, he won’t be joining me. Fortunately, Aunt Susie was more than willing to take his place and accompany me on the journey to Peru for our most massive hike yet. We’ll be gone for about 2 weeks (the actual trek is 7 days), not sure if I’ll be able to update while we’re there, but I’ll do my best.
