Left home early this morning. Kissed the wife, baby, and doggo goodbye. Hopped on a plane and in a matter of hours I'm over 1,400 miles away.
The inevitable is occurring, as it always does when I leave home. The FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) of my decision to leave is stronger than ever.
I guess it's good though, to feel these things. If I left everyone and everything I loved at home and DIDN'T feel this way, all hope just might be lost.
Arrived in Miami and linked up with my prearranged shuttle. Local trail boss is running shuttles this year and lives near the airport. Works out well for everyone. Another hiker is arriving later this evening and we'll all pile in and head to a Super Walmart in the morning on the way to the trailhead.
Another adventure lies ahead.
Let the healing begin.
