Many miles to go before we sleep. Today we sit in anticipation of the adventures to come. Tomorrow we celebrate our first anniversary and the beginning of another journey. The Continental Divide Trail, the trail of all trails, Eric's Triple Crown, another physical, mental and emotional test...the trail...nothing else like it in the world. We are officially homeless and “unplugged” and it feels wonderful! We have spent the past three weeks visiting family in Missouri and Cincinnati. Lots of quality time with the nieces and nephews; met Greyson for the first time and attended his baptism, took Adelynn on her first camping trip, enjoyed the curiousness of Addie and Daniel and played games and shared laughs with Lauren, Anna and Sam. Here we sit in Chicago, ready to board a plane to Albuquerque where we will rent a car and drive to Las Cruces and Deming trail angel, Keith (el coyote), will pick us up and take us to his house for some sleep before heading to the border in the morning. A smile in my heart as Eric serenades me with a made up song. I am anxious and happy and free in every sense of the word.
