And so it begins!

As I write this, I'm sitting in the Denver airport, using their brilliant free internet (aka gift from the gods)!!! I've got another two hours to wait until I meet up with the Up With People people who will take me away to start my adventure!! I am anxiously looking around wondering if I'll spot anyone with lots of stuff and excited/nervous looks on their faces.

I absolutely cannot believe that I'm sitting here now waiting for this trip to start! Well! I guess actually it has already started! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! Ah! It won't be real until I start meeting everyone in a couple of hours.

I want to thank everyone who helped me on my journey here. All the people who helped out at my fundraisers, who helped me figure out packing, and who listen to me talk (and talk and talk) about UWP! Thank you so much! I love you all and I hope you read my blog!!


  1. **"using their brilliant free internet", bubs.
    Miss you already!! Hope you're having a good day!

  2. OH NO. Now only you and I need to know that this TERRIBLE mistake happened. Haha. I miss you too. I left out the part where I needed an outlet and the only free one meant I have to sit on the floor. I'm using my suitcase as a desk. AS I TYPED THIS a 57 year old man walked by and laughed then said "Packed your desk?" to which I replied "I needed the outlet." THEN he said "I love it!" OH YES


  4. Sounds like you are off to a great start - making people laugh. There's nothing better.

  5. That story made me laugh...with the older man's comment on your desk at the airport. Sounds like your adventure is going well! Enjoy!
