Farewell Gathering

Matt and I will be at the Beaconsfield (Queen & Dovercourt) Wednesday night for drinks, dancing and fond farewells.

Matt will be spinning as well so come check out his mad DJ skillz.

Hope to see y'all there!

10 days till takeoff.

The gear.

Chris' backpack - Jack Wolfskin Atlas III - borrowed from uncle

Matt's backpack (pretty sure it's this one) - Deuter Quantum - bought at Europe Bound

These man-sized backpacks will be our homes away from home, our entire lives strapped to our backs, our barely mobile, somewhat portable suitcases.

We still have a lot of stuff to buy, borrow and's amazing how quickly six weeks became less than three.

Soon we will be as prepared and equipped as two guys who've never done anything like this before could ever hope to be.

We will be ready...we think.

17 days and counting.
