I'm sitting here; typing this when really I should be getting my equipment sorted out for my trip to Scotland at the end of this week.
I don't know why but sometimes I find it really difficult to motivate myself into doing this kind of stuff (the packing that is!)
Yesterday; I spent most of the day, trying to find food to take on the trip. For an activity that is helpful in reliving stress, it sure does seem to add to the stress levels as well.
Adding to all this is whether I'm making the right equipment choices, do I have the correct maps, will I remember the train tickets and the biggest hurdle; that SWMBO is not really that comfortable about me being away for 5 days.
I have always said that I would stop backpacking when I reached 50; now this is still three and a bit years away but I feel the time to stop may come sooner than that.
I'm starting to think that this trip could well be the last one.
