We're in the final stages off pre-trip planning, and are furiously trying to get everything done that we need to. We spent 2.5 hours tracing the route onto our large AAA New York street maps. While useful, that was quite a bit longer than we had anticipated. In order to give us the best chance of successfully completing our checklist, we read over the list, item by item, compiling addresses and phone numbers off relevant places throughout the city, including numerous backup plans in case our initial plans fell through.
Last but not least, at the suggestion of a friend, we weighed ourselves to see how much, if any, weight we would lose during the course of the walk. The contenders weighed in as follows:
Rob - 169 lbs.
Matt - 160 lbs.
Unfortunately, tomorrow's weather outlook hasn't gotten any better. We're hoping the hardest rain comes during the night so that things have died down somewhat by morning, but it's looking more and more like the first 6-8 hours of the walk are going to be extremely wet.
That's all for now. Next time you see an updated blog, we'll be on our way!
