Wings Spread or Time to Travel

Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between woman and the universe.
Anatole France

I'm spreading my wings and getting ready to wander again.I've spent the weekend completing travel plans for August and September. In August it's the 5 day trip to the Channel Islands on my photography/backpacking trip. I ended up purchasing most of the things I need since the rental is so high. Besides I want to do more backpacking/camping in the future. I had to laugh at the range of freeze dried foods available. You can eat gourmet even in the wilderness. Although the maximum we're allowed to load the pack with is 45 lbs, I'm trying to keep it down as I'm not going to have time to do a lot of conditioning for carrying a heavier pack. This is where being a fan of Olympus is going to come in handy as their DSLRs and lenses are lighter then other brands. Then I finally settled on a week in September to go visit my best friend in New Jersey. Of course we'll go into NYC, but we're going to go to Cape May/Atlantic City for a couple of days as in all my time of visiting we've never gotten there. It should be a good time and satisfy the urges to get out there that have been popping up lately.
