Thank goodness Paula and Mary Kay are interested in hiking at 5am. I need to get out and get fit quick. Saturday I leave for another 3 week vacation, 5 of those days backpacking at 10,000 feet in the Tetons.
The first part of the 3 weeks Tina and I will alternate between being tourists and backpackers in the Jackson Hole, WY area. The last 6.5 days I attend a photography workshop called Grand Teton National Park 2009 with Craig Tanner and Marti Jeffers (no relation to me).
I hit the floor running since Ray and I arrived home from Mammoth. What was I thinking planning back to back vacations? Ray will stay home while Tina and I spend 12 days together before my photography workshop.
This one week home has been interesting. I just do the next indicated thing and hope that by the end of the week all I need to do to get ready for my departure, gets done. I’m packing all my photography gear and carrying that on my back while traveling. I’ll be wearing a fanny pack, filled as it usually is. My suitcase is packed to the max (trekking poles and tripod in it) and weighs much more than the weight allowed, and my packed backpack will most likely be mailed off to where Tina and I will be staying in Pinedale, WY the first couple of nights, as there is no way I can handle dealing with all the luggage I have.
I’ve neglected this blog and I’m not happy about that and neither are some of you. So sorry. But, I did manage to catch up on all the Tivo’d episodes of America’s Got Talent. Priorities.
