Monday morning 8/22/2011 7:30am – Trapper Creek, AK
We woke up pretty early – I don’t know why since we got to bed pretty late. After showering and packing the car – we drove over to the actual lodge (the main building) and got bre’fast.
Sunday morning 8/21/2011 8:30am – Worcester, MA
I’m either heading to church about now for Sunday school or I’m getting ready to head to service only. Either way – I’m about to be at BBC. 🙂 Not today though – I’m off to David’s house to then head to the airport on the start of this adventure.
I got to his house around 9am, we put all our luggage in his wife’s car and hung out for a bit. David even packed a lunch for when we were going to be in Philly later. We left and got to the airport around 11am for a 12:30pm flight from Boston Logan to Philly. We landed at about 2pm – the shortest flight of the whole trip (well shortest jet flight.. but more on that later).
I just finished packing for Denali trip tomorrow. My checked suitcase is just barely under 50 lb – I had to take stuff out to get it down to that weight. I’ve got that plus my carry-on and my computer-backpack (which is a cheat for a 2nd carry-on since my iPad is my “computer”).
I won’t be at church tomorrow (technically today since it’s after midnight).. a friend called me a heathen. Meh.
See after the break for some pics…
