I have quite the stitch in my side. I am still coughing due to the cold I am still trying to get over. I have been taking cough syrup, which is quite disgusting, and I am also on pain killers for the pain in my side. I hate being sick. I think the cough is in my head and I just need to tell myself that I really don't need to cough. I isn't a very productive cough either. Just an annoying cough that is quite painful. I was expecting the pain in my side to be a deterent to coughing today, but I seemed to cough just as much today as yesterday. Maybe tomorrow will be better no that I am taking something for the pain.
The itinerary is slowly coming together. I hope to have it done early next week. I am roughing in the dates and will then add town stops and rework the dates a little to take the towns into account. There are only 21 days left before I find myself in Maine trying to stick to some arbitrary schedule I made in the comfort of my home. I expect to deviate from the schedule but I am curious by how much I will deviate. I am also becoming a little anxious about everything. This is a huge undertaking that is the trip of a life time and I am really excited but worried too. I hope that the worries will disappear once I hit the trail. I also hope I can pick up postcards on the way to send out. I have a few people in mind who I want to send postcards too.
