Well, this is it. My bags are packed and I'm just about ready to go. I have to admit I felt a little nauseous when I saw how much stuff I was bringing. My pack is heavy, but not unbearable. Thankfully, it also seems very compact. I wish I had something profound to say, but I actually just feel tired! My roommate and I were talked into going down to San Diego last night so after a long night, today I've been running around like crazy. My plan is to head up to Lone Pine tomorrow after work, but that is subject to change if I can't get my last minute chores done. Anyways, I hope to bring back some good pictures when I return. Happy Trails!
