A few more items

Hello everyone,

I discovered just a few more things to pass by you as you're preparing

  • Clean clothes? Yes, you can keep a duffel of clean clothes at my sister's place in Wenatchee. We will be there Sunday night and then a week later on our way to the airport. Showers will also be available - ladies first!
  • About group gear: Just because you are bringing gear for the group doesn't mean you will be carrying it in - we will distribute it fairly before embarking on the boat. Everyone, please save about 5-8 lbs or 10 litersin your pack for group gear.

I know there is some trepidation and nervousness about measuring up to our ambitious itinerary and objectives. I just want to make it clear nothing is set in stone - it just a starting place. We have a plan to start with, and we will of necessity modify it to accomodate the factors we encounter on the trip. These may be heavy packs, bad weather, tired folks or even marvelous weather, an abundance of energy and easy trails - it could go either way. If we need to go slower on the way in or out, or take a rest day, or change our itinerary entirely, I am open to that. It is a team effort. No one will be left behind or feel like they are holding the group back. And everyone who is on this team was carefully selected by Paul and I so we need you all.

The point is I'm committed to helping everyone have a really great time and a successful trip, and that means we will be unified and work together. So looking forward to sharing it with you!

Looking forward to seeing you all very soon,
