I have had an absolutely awesome week of fun outings and going away parties with friends. I am very happy that I have so many awesome friends and family members and I look forward to future expeditions when I return!
I am only 36 hours away from departing Seattle, and I am just about ready to leave. Final packing is being accomplished, and some minor last minute shopping is happening as well. I was able to take advantage of the beautiful weather to circumnavigate Jetty Island, and visit the really old ships that they sunk about 100 years ago to create the Everett breakwater.
Next up is continuing working on my gear, and finalizing my resupplies. Trail has quite a few good streams currently, and the snow isn’t looking too bad, but I will need some snow gear for the first bit unfortunately.
