Of course panicking now is not going to help anything and that’s why we trained monkeys don’t do that! Tonight I will be the fastest packer in the world: need to pack race clothes (warm and cold), business clothes because after the race I am in Seattle for work (meetings, meetings, meetings), GPS device, water bottles, sharkies, endurolytes, gels, hydropeel, and my trusted shoes. Let the fun begin. Looking forward to meeting all the other participants. Got to get babysitting for dog and cats, rent car.
The trip starts tomorrow: Toronto to Seattle, Seattle Boise (Idaho), Boise to Alta in Wyoming. Long trip.
Grand Teton National Park is apparently a fantastic place. From the National Park Services:
Grand Teton: Located in northwestern Wyoming, Grand Teton
National Park protects stunning mountain scenery and a diverse array of
wildlife. The central feature of the park is the Teton Range — an
active, fault-block, 40-mile-long mountain front. The range includes
eight peaks over 12,000 feet (3,658 m), including the Grand Teton at
13,770 feet (4,198 m). Seven morainal lakes run along the base of the
range, and more than 100 alpine lakes can be found in the backcountry.
Elk, moose, pronghorn, mule deer, and bison are commonly seen in the
park. Black bears are common in forested areas, while grizzlies are
occasionally observed in the northern part of the park. More than 300
species of birds can be observed, including bald eagles and peregrine
I hope I get to see some of the wildlife?
