It’s almost time for me to head out.
I’ve spent the past five weeks traveling around the state of Washington and visiting friends and family. I went up the Space Needle for the first time, to a Mariners game in Safeco Field for the first time, to the Museum of Flight in Seattle, up to the Sinlahekin Wildlife Area in the north Cascades, to Sequim on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula, down to central Oregon, and more.
After all the preparation and anticipation, I’m just about ready to go. I’m very excited, but also a little nostalgic, looking back on where I’ve come from and the many adventures I’ve had. I’ll miss family and friends, but I trust I’ll see them again soon, and I’m ready for the next chapter of my life.
I fly out of Yakima at 6 am Sunday morning, arrive at SeaTac 40 minutes later, and then fly to Honolulu a couple hours later. I’ll fly to Kwajalein the next day.
I’ll be taking my DSLR and a couple of smaller digital cameras, including a new camera that I can take underwater. I plan to frequently update this blog with stories and photos.
