Hi everyone, oh boy all of your arrival stories are really really getting me excited to once again be on that trip! I'm going to come back to this thread often to help get through the seemingly endless prep work.
My super favorite point was, after 16+ hours of piloting a monsterous old coach and listening to the rumbling diesel in the back, finally backing into the camp spot and shutting down the engine. Then the airbrakes hissed one last time...and it was like "Houston, the Eagle has landed". Thereafter followed one of the best weeks of my life (so far!)!!
