Krankin Thru China Trip Update (9-26-2013)

So, I am down to less than 2 weeks before I embark on a trip of a lifetime – 11 days to be exact – and I am very excited, nervous, happy, scared and so many thoughts and emotions all wrapped into one. My head is already spinning and there are still many days until I fly out. I am so taken aback by all of the support from people and organizations. I have even had the pleasure of chatting with (over Skype) some of the people I will be spending a good amount of my time with in China. Looks like I will definitely be returning with great new friendships.

Over the last few days I have been fiddling with the new cameras and trying to be more proficient at using them. The last thing I want to have happen is a wrong button pushed right before I try to navigate some killer pass and not get the footage. The GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition is pretty easy to use, with only 3 buttons. I think I will get it down pat soon. Wish me luck!

I have also be trying to pack some of my things in my pack, filtering through things I THINK I need and the things I really need. Only so much room and I will be there for a good while, so I have to grab only the necessities. I have also been working on getting my bike shipped over, rather than trying to bring it on the plane with me. It sounds pretty positive that I will be able to ship it over, but we will see. It is getting close to travel time.

Only a few more odds and ends to wrap up and I will be off on this grand adventure!
