The time has come and this will be my final post until I return. It is hard to relax and the stresses continue to mount. Did I pack everything? Do I have the required papers? The required kit? Will my family have what they need while I’m gone? Then there are the things beyond my control such as; If my bag is lost or if my plane is delayed, I would miss the event before it even starts. Even while these thoughts cloud my thinking, the one thing that hits the hardest is that I will board a plane early Saturday morning and leave my wife and my son behind for two weeks.
