The Time Has Come to Cross the Border and Head to HONG KONG!

Chillaxing with Kathy's pups

My time of final preps in the SF Bay area is drawing to a close. It has been a nice visit with my sister, a great time with my God Parents, and a delightful meeting with new friends that I got to know at Trail Space.

This morning started out with a final trip to my favorite REI location in downtown San Francisco. It is where I first purchased my pack two years ago, after which I walked the couple of miles back to the hotel where I was attending a prosecutor’s conference on Evidence. Today I picked up another bladder for water and some other odds and ends. Then it was off to Radio Shack to get a power converter and some flash drives for photo storage.

Then I picked up a bowl of soup and sourdough for lunch because that was sooo good Saturday that I had to do it again! Finally, I headed off to Mad House Coffee to meet Bill Heiser and BillS from trail Space. I had such a great time with Bill H., Bill S., and his wife Barb. Though I always enjoy

Great soup, great bread!

them on the Trail Space Forums, they now have human bodies, voices and laughs! It was such fun. OGBO (BillS) said it all when he said that it is nice to get out from behind a computer screen to interact with each other.

So now it is time to lock up the duffel and the back pack and get ready for a 14 hour trip to Hong Kong where I will meet up with Leo Nichols, my cousin, and do a whirlwind tour.

I am trying to get real tired so I can sleep on the plane and be ready for all the fun Hong Kong can offer.

    Oh Karen! What an amazing journey you are on. I had a whirlwind trip of Hong Kong in 2003 with Drew & Erin Bishop as tour guides. It was truly trains, planes and automobiles – plus the exciting and a little terrifying “Star Ferry”. I’m praying for you. Thanks for sharing your adventures!

    The plan is breakfast at the Intercontinental Tsim TsaTsui, Star Ferry to the Island, the Peak tram, hiking on the Peak to keep her in shape and then a little shopping in Mongkok. More than enough for her first visit to Hong Kong.
