Well, not yet exactly, but we are in a sort of countdown to our trip to Pine Ridge Reservation.

Someone at church last night asked me if I was ready for the trip. I laughed and replied, "I'm always ready, and I'm never ready". There are changes taking place as I type, that's how fast things change. For the past several months I've been meticulously planning this trip and now, less than two months out from the day we leave, I have only a vague idea of what will actually happen. As strange as it may seem to many, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Right now there are several things up in the air and I have no idea how they will fall. It will be like that until we pull out of the parking lot at 6:00 AM July 28th.

At this point, the only thing that would truly scare me is if everything was going according to plan.

If you're of the mind to, check out the trip blog to see what's going on.
