Trail Card

The business cards I made for the walk are now ready. Thanks so much to Kevin Yee who helped put them together for me. Please excuse the photo, which does not do justice to Mr. Yee's graphic artistry. If you'd like to check out more of his work, go to his website here.
I also bought my first swimmer's towel today, which is a tiny, light-weight rubbery thing that absorbs tons of water. Once the water has become one with the towel just squeeze and the H2O wrings right out. Repeat this process until you have reached the requisite level of dryness.
Wrapping up today's successes, I also purchased another Dri-Fit t-shirt, a micro-fiber shirt supposedly designed to wick moisture. I don't have a clue what that has to do with a candle, but the thing theoretically keeps you dry when you sweat like the pig from "Charlotte's Web" after the farmer came around the bend mumbling something about bacon for breakfast.

Looks awesome! Can't wait for you to start your adventure. I shall live vicariously through you. I once thought about doing this...but it is but a dream now, like opening my mouth in the mist to drink the water. Never enough.

Maybe I'll walk up to your doorstep in Oregon in the not so distant future. Until then jump on my back - the ride is about to begin and it will be a bumpy one.

Glad to read you are underway and making progress through my neck of the woods. I'm standing by to take you across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
