Well we start our drive to Banff, Canada tomorrow. Today was a whirl of packing and last minute shopping trips. Thankfully our most recent online purchase came in the mail today. We bought spare chains and were extremely relieved when they arrived on our front porch just in time.
Going into this I am feeling very excited and a little nervous. The scale of this trip is huge and I really hope I can complete it and meet my goal of raising $10,000 for the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. I am planning on posting on this blog at least once a week, and I am so excited to share our stories with you all.
I am very excited to say we will be joined by my Nana and Papa for the majority of this trip. This is a super nice luxury we were not expecting to have. Now we don’t need to worry as much about where to store gear and chargers and extra food. They will also be towing a trailer so we will have a place to sleep while in grizzly country.
Thank you everyone for joining us on our adventure. The amount of support given to us by the mountain community has been awe-inspiring. From the attendance at the Idle Hour Winery event to the random donations we get in the mail the assistance we have been given from our little town has been incredible. So a big thank you to everyone who has become a part of our journey, I look forward to sharing all of these memories with you.
