So, status update #1: Its coming down to the wire. Our last day in "civilization" is this Friday. T-minus 5 days and counting. Tomorrow we have an official farewell shindig for some of the people we probably wouldn't get a chance to visit before we depart; we'll just have to make do with last minute visits to get the rest and apologize profusely to everyone we miss...sorry in advance!
Hopefully at least one more post before we take off.
