It seemed like a good idea at the time.
I have wandered through the entire gamut of emotions this past week. I have finally settled down into anticipation.
I've got everything packed, but still need to make sandwiches and pack my cooler. I'm slightly less organized than I like to be, but I am thinking I should have plenty of time when I get to the trail head, in daylight, to re-organize and write up some notes to myself.
I gave people at work the usual vague answer about what I was doing. One tech asked if I was doing a vision quest. Perhaps I am. I shall see what transpires over the next 48 hours.
I am driving to Virginia on Thursday, to start my run early Friday morning. I plan on finishing my run in the early morning hours of Sunday. It's a bit to wrap my head around, running into two nights, but that isn't my style, anyways. I will focus on one loop at a time. Run from my landmarks, to my aid station caches, back to my vehicle. The weather looks good.
I shall see if I can get an update out from the trailhead!
