Just a quick post from a "not-hostel" in Key West. Early tomorrow morning my friend Michelle and I board a ferry to some remote islands called the Dry Tortugas for three days of camping. Like legit camping. We brought a tent, food, water & all our own supplies and everything. And we're hoping hurricane season doesn't start before the end of the week. (It's incredible how much stuff we helpless humans need to live in nature for a few days when everything else just lives there - well, naturally.) I have my rucksack and a lot of my new travel gear so I'm treating like a dry run before my mega-trip. Excited!
