Sun Aug 19, 2001 - t-minus 21 days
Just 21 days to go before I'm off to Europe! I've got everything marked off my checklist (well, just about everything) and I've "broken in" my vagabond gear: tent, backpack, sleeping bag, etc.
Even though my mind is in Europe most of the time, my experiences up here at Camp Arbolado are wonderful. When I am not working by teaching kids about archaeology and astronomy, I'm hiking through the San Gorgonio Wilderness. Each hike is, on average, 16 miles long. Sometimes in a group, but most of the time solo. (ask my Mom about my encounter with a bear - she loves to tell it).
Talk to you again when September 11th approaches!
