:D :D :D :D So the time has come at last and I'm leaving from Oakland, California in 8 hours. I'm nervous and excited and know that I have to much stuff and know that I don't have enough stuff. I especially want to thank all of you guys out there for your kind advice and encouragement...thanks Sil for the tips and itinerary and Br. David, you are funny and inspirational. I hope to run into some of you there and wish I could meet you all. I'm looking forward to being able to offer advice myself after this experience........

thanks a million,



Best of luck - don't forget to look back every now and then - you will be impressed with how brilliant you are at it and how far you have gone (different view too).

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always on your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rain fall soft upon your fields and,
until your journey's end,
May God hold you safely in the palm of his hand.

Have a safe journey both of you.

Buen Camino
