I am leaving Idyllwild and my friends house early tomorrow morning for Lake Morena and ADZPCTKO, aka "the kick off". I have had an extraordinary break these last two days, with a gift of a two hour massage from Stacey and a party today for me with friends from all over the area coming over for a tostada bar. Yummm. I am rested and ready to head out back to hiker environs with trail hiking beginning again on Sunday.
Tomorrow I will be checking out a new pack and possible new tent to use until I get back to hammocking, whenever that be. I will have quite the opportunity as most of the truly lightweight gear vendors will be there. All the innovators from the last decade will be in attendance and I will be able to geek out in perfect harmony with my fellow gear geeks, also known as gram weenies.
I will be sad to send my pack home, but not sad enough to keep wearing it from here to Canada. Say bye bye.
