Good advice. Sounds like one hell of a trip on the radar! Are you planning to keep a blog or upload pics? Let me know so I can keep up.
BTW: The army only gave me bad knees...how in the world did you score an IPOD? hehe
Thanks. Don't worry, I got the bad knees as well...
As far as the I-pod goes, I was an Arabic linguist, they gave it to me for language maintenance. I am not sure whether I will maintain a blog or anything. Definitely not for the first leg, which will hopefully involve as much independent trekking as my knees can handle.
