    Love your resolutions! Maybe I should do this - I actually wrote my mom a letter today which was one of the things I wanted to do. Can I shamelessly steal your ideas? I like a lot of your goals...

    Have you chosen a jungle to hike yet? We can settle for some groovy national park instead I suppose. Maybe sleep under the stars on that trip?
