My two Samurai spudlets and I are taking off December 29 on a spiritual pilgrimage to the Holy Mountain, Mt. Athos, in Greece. We’ll celebrate Old Calendar (Julian) Nativity and New Year’s with the brothers at Vatopedi Monastery where we’ll be staying for nine days. If you’re curious, you can read more about Mt. Athos and Vatopedi monastery where we’ll be staying.
My hope and plan is to do frequent updates about the trip at a Posterous site I set up just for this pilgrimage: mountathos.posterous.com. There’s nothing posted there yet but soon will be once the journey gets underway. Bookmark it and check in with it if you wanna keep up with what’s happening. You can also subscribe to it so that new posts get emailed to you.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to check in periodically while on pilgrimage. In any event, you’ll be in good hands with RegUS_PatOff, the Samurai School of Appliantology Super Moderator and Grand Master Funk.
