India or Bust, Part 2

8 days and counting...

Okay, Greg and I are taking our typhoid pills, will start our malaria pills shortly, have two sore arms from our shots and our eyes wide open after sitting down with 'Bob' last week. Bob is a travel RN who gave us the low-down on the "things to worry about while traveling to the remote regions of India". Needless to say after almost two hours, we've decided that we'll lose a lot of weight considering we won't be able to eat or drink on our entire trip.

With that being said, I guess I'd rather know the perils up front, rather than find out the hard way. A VERY eye-opening session.

In the next few days we'll need to coordinate schedules for family and the girls, get the dog groomed, find good light hiking shoes, figure out what to pack (we're back-packing), over-eat to compensate for the 'lack-of' on the trip, get the house winterized in the event of an early season snow storm and basically throw our common sense and caution to the wind. I do believe this will be an adventure of a lifetime!

Now... if we could just stop terrorists from ruining our get-away.
