Stayed up a little too late last night, a friend from out of town was over at a friend's house and we stayed up till 1 AM laughing and telling stories :) I had gone out to dinner previously (and got half a roasted chicken!!) and had a beer, but I stopped drinking after that and just enjoyed everyone's company. It was really great and I didn't mind being the one not drinking. I actually got to help out a friend and drive her home because I was sober, and that felt good.
I TRIED to sleep in this morning, but apparently, that is beyond my capabilities anymore.
I knew I had a lot to do this morning to get ready for the weekend. We are backpacking into a pretty isolated area, sleeping overnight there, then hiking in further to attempt the Santanoni range. We might sleep another night in the woods, but if we are feeling strong, we will backpack out on Saturday.
I sure hope everything goes well. I want to finish the 46. I want to be a 46er. We have been working on this for almost 3 years now. We are kind of amped about it, kind of nervous about, kind of a bundle of emotions over the whole thing!
So my weekend will undoubtedly be muddy, dirty, exhausting, bug-filled, wet, and COMPLETELY amazing. :)
I love the mountains!
Peace and love, everyone, I hope you all have the perfect weekend for you :)
