That about sums up how I feel. I don't get terribly excitied or anxious or whatever else very often but as my departure approaches and I'm finally within a week of leaving I am somewhat excited to begin this adventure.
I have not started hiking yet and do not plan to until the end of the week but I am presently heading out west with the current plan being to pick up the last of my gear and any last minute upgrades today, do a day hike in the Castle Wilderness tomorrow and then drop down into Montana and sort out my permits for the first few days in Glacier National Park.
The tracking page is now active and will update my location every 10-minutes(only every hour once I start hiking). The Status Update page should also be active though I don't intend to do more than test updates until I begin hiking.
