Ra Ra Sis Boom Bah!

Well, it's finally one month before we are wheels up and headed for our Asian adventure. Frankly, there's not a whole lot left to do. We've been to the doctor; we've got our shots; the last of our visas arrived earlier this week. We've purchased any new gear that we need. All that's left to do is to pack and get excited. We're already excited, but in this next month, a lot of things can happen. Second-guessing, doubt, and last-minute freak-outs are quite likely. Last-minute details like "should we treat our clothes with Permethrin?" may overshadow our excitement.

The packing thing we can handle on our own, but here's where we'll need your help. We need cheerleaders. We need you to help remind us that we are doing something brave, wonderful, and adventurous. So, please, drop us a line, leave a comment, wish us well.

In other news, Lizzi's dad has sent us another safety announcement. We'll add this one to the collection.

(1) I don't think you need to treat your clothes with Permethrin. Although I would advise wrapping your arms, legs, and any other exposed areas of skin in saran wrap, and (2) you guys are going to have the experience of your lives!

On a more serious encouragement note, you two are a huge inspiration--it takes a lot of courage, patience and love to travel with your partner even under the best circumstances--what you two are doing is nothing short of amazing.
