Celebrating the 4th in anticipation of the 5th!

The holiday weekend is upon us and people across North Carolina are planning their celebrations filled with fireworks, cook-outs and lots of sunscreen. There is a group with a different agenda: the folks heading to the Amazon with the Museum on July 5th.

Our weekend will be filled with last minute packing and planning for our trip. We have been preparing for several months, getting prescriptions from physicians, finding items to trade in the village, reading about canopy research and studying our packing lists. This is the weekend to put it all together. We will be weighing our luggage to make certain it is less than 55 pounds, tucking the 3 ounce toiletries into our carry-on bags, and sending out the emergency contact information to our friends and family.

We will still enjoy the gatherings on Independence Day, sharing the “oohs” and “ahhs” for the fireworks that night, but our minds will be looking forward to the “oohs” and “ahhs” we hope to experience in the Amazon.
