Okay, It's about 5 months too go before I leave and already I can start to feel the pressure. Do I have everything, have I thought of everything, have I practiced everything. I know from past experience that this will only grow with time, but that's just the way these things go.
To give you a little info on the trip I'll show you the route out, and back. You'll notice that there is a big difference between the two routes. On the way up I plan on taking my time. The last thing I want to do is blast my way north so fast that I miss everything on the way. I also know that once I reach my final destination and I turn my horse back towards the barn I get in a hurry to get home. So the route back is short, sort of, and fast, sort of.
