As we prepare to venture forth in just a few short hours, many things are running through my mind. Did I pack enough? Did I pack too much? Should I have really stayed up till midnight playing guitar hero? I thank God for family who are willing to host strange college students at a moments notice, and I pray that we all have a safe trip. The preparations have been made, and we can only pray that they have been enough, for it is time to depart. And I leave you now, looking forward to a journey that will no doubt be extrodinarilly memorable.
