In less than 14 hours I will be in a third-world country.

My anxiety level has been completely off the charts for the last 10 days.
"Are all my bills paid up for 3 months?"
"Did I pack too much?"
"What will I do if/when this scenario happens?"

Sleep has been hard to come by. I wake up every morning at 3am from a recurring dream where I 'm stuck in an Ecuadorian jungle unable to cross the river Chris McCandless style.

Last night, Jon and I had our going away party. We thank you all for coming out (especially the super hung-over kickballers). Numerous micro-brews and slabs of protein were consumed. My dear parents (and grandmother) were kind enough to make the trip to see me off.

I plan on using this travel blog as a way to keep in touch with family and friends back home. Hopefully, I will be able to make 2-3 entires per week in the less remote areas of my travels. If I fail to make an entry for 3 weeks, don't worry, it's probably because I'm miles from the nearest internet connection.

Feel free to forward this blog on to anyone who may be interested! Feedback and comments are encouraged.
Next stop, Colombia

Note from Dad
Hang on to your luggage and don't drink the water...
most importantly, keep these blogs coming so the rest of us can dream about being there with you.
