Gave my notice last week – they finally posted the position today. The countdown clock says 43 more days until my last day of work.
Time to focus on assembling gear, fall-cleaning the house, closing out work. Shakedown hikes, water- and bug-proofing, learning the venomous snakes of Florida and beyond. Acquire permits, print maps, plan routes. Read up on the rules of wildlife interactions: don’t make eye contact with a bear, don’t break eye contact with a panther, no selfies.
The countdown clock says 97 days until I leave for Florida.
