Today has been an amazing day! I traveled back to Portland from Florence. Upon arrival my aunt made us delicious cheeseburgers.
We drove 45 minutes out to Camp Collins where my Journey was set to begin. I walked into camp and met the crews from all 3 routes.
The training began with an overview of all of the policies and procedures for the trip. Everything seemed pretty basic, but going over everything started to make this feel real.
This evening in search of cell service to send a single text I had a chance to hang out with 3 Pi Alphas (Pi Kapps who have done a previous Journey of Hope). It was great hearing about their "ah ha moments," where they realized how much bigger this trip is than themselves. I am so excited to experience that moment myself.
Tomorrow I'll be waking up bright and early to begin another day of training!
