The Dragon's Gift, The Gryphon's Kiss

 May 8, 2010

Hello Fellow Friends, Family, and Followers,

A Special Thank you to everyone for staying updated upon our impending departure.

I would like to make an update on our Prior Blog Posting regarding the Supplies we require for our adventure. We now have most the Provisions we require for this lengthy trek.

-Mai Tai's Back Pack is on its way:)
-As well as his Sole Guard Boots
-And We both have new boots as well, found them on sale at Big 5, they are Hi-Tech,and matching.
We have also borrowed a Marine Camo tent that is plenty spacious and fairly light/ compact.
-I have a new Hi- Tek 80L hiking backpack, with many cool bells and whistles.
-Basic First Aid Kit and Survival Toolkit
-Custom Walking Staffs (I hand Carved one of them for Shawna Personally)
-Lightweight Propane Stove
-Sturdy Hiking Socks
-Two sturdy and Combinable Mummy Sleeping Bags

We still need a few things though...
-Dylan, Send me that Bankroll Bro, we need it soon please:)
-Sleeping Pads (thinking Inflatable, Military Issues) Any Recommendations Anyone?
-Shawna needs a Camping Pillow
-Lighter- Weight Mess Kit
-One Camel- Pak Water Reservoir For Myself
-Thermal Undergarments for us Each
-Empty Boxes so we can start packing.

That really covers our immediate needs, with so much more having been made possible with the help of our wonderful roommates, a Special Shout- Out to Destiny and Ben, for Taking car of not only our two lovely Cats, but for also allowing us to have a no- cost place for storing our personal affects while we venture off into the unknown. Thanks Guys:)

Also both of our Parents (Shawna's and My own that is), have greatly contributed to this epic endeavor, my parents through refinancing my truck back to them, Shawna's dad with a generous contribution of an iPhone, which will allow for mobile updates and G.P.S. Navigation while off of the beaten Path.

If Anyone has a contribution, information, or supplies, please let us know, we leave the last weekend of June, so so very soon!

“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” – Mark Jenkins
