My Bags are Packed….

My Bags are Packed, I’m Ready To Go…

What can I say I have that song in my head this morning (If you haven’t figured it out yet the song is “Leaving On A Jetplane.” The movers are about to show up and start packing our house up for our big move to Annapolis. As I mentioned in my previous post, because of this I had to pack for our Transit of Venus Adventure more ahead of time than usual. So as I started this post… my bags are packed… okay well mostly packed 🙂 I am still waiting to 1 or 2 more items in there. I tried to keep it as minimal as possible though.

I think I’ve done okay with my packing… I’ve got some comfortable “convertible” hiking pants, a pair of shorts, a bunch of t-shirts (mostly NASA/mission logo ones), hiking boots, hat, sunscreen etc. Still waiting on my long sleeve sun protectant shirt but North Face claims it will be here tomorrow!

I can’t believe the adventure begins in just a few days! Can’t wait to share it with all of you!!




Getting Very Excited About Gobi!

Well to say life is crazy here would be one heck of an understatement but for those of you who know me you won’t be the least bit surprised at craziness in my life… seems that’s pretty much typical life for me!!! But now is even crazier than usual with our impending move. The movers will be here to pack us all up starting a week from today so I have to be packed for my next ISSET Adventure prior to that (or else everything I need will be in a box on a truck headed for Annapolis which won’t do me any good at all!!) 

To that end I have started – and to be fair mostly finished! – my packing for the Gobi Desert Adventure. I need to go buy 1 or 2 more things and I am waiting on 1 more thing to arrive in the mail but it’s incredible how close it’s getting! Packing for this was one of the more interesting packing jobs I have done since I’ll be honest I was a little perplexed on what all to pack! Hopefully I did okay! 

Can’t wait to keep you all updated on the progress of the adventure! I leave next Friday (June 1st)!
