I will arrive in NYC at about 6am tomorrow morning - HOPEfully on time - in order to board another bus that SHOULD get me to the mountain by about 11:30 am. I am excited to get going... and having trouble remembering to breathe at the same time.
I will feel a whole lot less anxious about every single border crossing, bus ticket, train connection and hostel reservation that i have planned over the next 21 days though after these first few bits of the plan work out as intended (or, at least close ENOUGH to intended that I get myself from here to there in a timely fashion.
I will be updating here in the blog space every few days along the way; with a bit of a communication lull during the jam-packed festival days of August 8-11....
THANK YOU so much again to everyone that has helped me to fund this adventure by ordering POSTCARDS FROM PARKS, buying nifty gifts, shirts and posters, and/or making me AMAZING travel music gifts, wishing me well, and cheering me on.
Much love to you all.
