Well, it's one o'clock in the morning and all original intent has now been lost. I'm crazy excited, worried, overwhelmed, by this thing that we're going to try in over a year. Yes, that sentence does sound stupid after typing it out. But it's true.
I used to be better at writing entertaining posts. I went back and was reading my old CDT and PCT blogs. I know that I might be an easy crowd but I was entertained.
Today I made soup. I made butternut squash, celery root, leek and collard greens soup. I made it mostly from the Full Belly Farm CSA box that we just started getting this week. I also made granola. It tastes yummy. Yes Squatch I said it, yummy. I made it with chopped almonds, sesame seeds, wheat germ, dried cranberries, diced dried apples, um... oats, yeah oats are in there too. (See what I mean? I've lost my touch with any ability that I once had of written captivation. I'm talking about granola ingredients.)
So, I assume that I'm going to have to erase this post eventually. It's really boring. But the CDT is going to happen. Marlowe and I are planning it. I felt tonight that I finally started to get it all. We need to plan more. We need to learn more about navigation. We need some heavier warmer gear. But, now I know. Now I can get started, rather than just making granola. This isn't the PCT. We're going to have to sacrifice a lot more.
