Crew Shakedown

I had some personal misgivings about how well my body would hold up for this little backpacking trip. My right leg is not yet back to full capacity after pulling my hamstring; the cortisone in my left shoulder wore off this week, and it hurt like nobody's business; and when I hoisted my backpack in the church the first time Thursday afternoon, D. said my expression was something to behold (I hadn't hoisted a fully loaded pack -- with water -- in quite a while). Nevertheless, I put my game face on and went anyway. Deanne pestered heaven with prayers (God bless her).Collapse )
