The count down to flyout is hear! Not much exciting going on except hiking with a pack.  Too stinking hot at Fullbright so switch to stadium stairs at the high school.  My daughter joins me most nights. She's a little beast. She even tried a flight with my 65lb pack on  :chuckle:

Last night was my last pack session before I leave. Did 20 rounds listening to Goggins telling me to "stay hard"  :chuckle:  time to rest up and spend some time with the family. Chiro and massage on Wednesday, pack my carry on Thursday,  and then wheels up Friday  :IBCOOL:

I'm not jealous. I'm not, I'm not, I'm not.

Here's to safe travels and an epic hunt, my man!

Good luck man. I know you will savor every moment, even if its wet, cold and miserable. Looking forward to reading all about it when you get back and recover  :chuckle:

Thanks all!

After a lot of emotional turmoil and a lot of oven heat and thick socks I've got these Hanwags stretched out and feeling great! They have officially gotten the green light for the hunt.
