Lets start out with the fact that I bumped my start date forward to April 11th. I've adjusted my plan accordingly and have left in a very generous number of layover and zero days. I don't think I need all of these days but I am using this as a reminder to take my time to enjoy this journey.

One thing I didn't mention that I'm excited about is the fact that I'm going to reconnect with two old Rose friends at the start of this adventure. Amelia and I are Gamma Lambda Chi O's and she has generously offered to not only house me the night before my trip but to give me a ride to the trailhead. This is no small thing - Amelia is saving me both stress and time. She's really helping to start this trip out on the right note. And for the bonus points, another Rosie, Steve, will be traveling with me for the first leg of my journey. Again, I couldn't be happier to have support as this journey kicks off.
Outside of that, I've applied for my PCT Thru Hike Permit and secured my CA Fire Permit.
|Yay for my PCT permit application! |
I'll feel a little more warn-n-fuzzy as soon as the real deal is issued ;)
|Hint: My boxes will be wrapped with Minion duct tape!|
Till next time.
