Oh my goodness. Today is the day my friends. I am off to Mrs Savvy B’s place today for our hike. I still don’t know who the hell we are and what on earth has possessed us to do such a thing, but we are in fact doing it.
After months of planning, training and preparations we are off. Ha ha ha ha, just kidding, there has been none of that. We are more “fly by the seat of our pants” kind of girls. I am pretty sure it was only a month ago that I made the outrageous suggestion of a hike to Mrs Savvy B.
As for training… hmmm well there has been none of that. Unless you count 3 afternoons of walking around my track with the backpack on.
Oh and did I mention that my hiking boots/socks/shirt etc etc only arrived last night. And only because Mr Chardy went to town. So I think I might be hiking in my old faithful joggers rather than a new pair of shoes – even though I have 3 pairs to choose from.
I did take your advice Liz – I have some liner socks and nice thick hiking socks. Boy, we are going to look a treat that’s for sure. Thank god no one will see us.
Anyway, wish us luck – we will probably need it. I am heading over to SB’s house this morning where we will lay the contents of our packs out and see what we do and don’t need. Then Mr SB will drop us up the top of their property where we will camp the night and set off early in the morning.
I will be back here on Monday afternoon and hope to have a run down of the whole ordeal to you by Wednesday, so stay tuned my friends.
And again I ask you – WHO THE HELL AM I?
Have a great weekend.
