Letter to Self

Dear Vahe,

I am writing from the past to the future on what I have experienced at Yosemite. Well, Vahe, I want you to know that you had a great experience where you learned how to prepare yourself to go on a backpacking trip, to only eat pita bread and graham crackers, [and] to only drink nothing but water and on some occasions drink Hot Cocoa.

Other things you learned is how to use a portable stove and how to make a snow cave or how to set up a tent.

Vahe, you also learned how to work as a team member, and that will help you in the long run. Vahe, most of all you learned what the wilderness is about and how it can effect you and your teammates. Vahe, listen, I recommend that you come back in the future so that you [can] experience some more and trust me you will have a good time.
