Figuring Things Outokay. I've had a few days off to think about things, and I've talked to a lot of people. Here's the story - I want to keep hiking, but I don't want to do it right now. the last few days on the trail, I was feeling really burned out. the bugs were getting to me, as were the smell, the dirt, the sleeping on the ground, etc. I was tired of hiking. I guess it makes sense - I'd been out there pretty much continuously for the last 2.5 months. I'd walked more than 1100 miles, which is a looooong way. I needed a vacation from my vacation. so, my plan is to go to Minnesota for a couple of weeks to stay with my sister, then get back on the trail at the CA/OR border at the end of July/beginning of August. that way, I'll have time here to replan my trip as a solo one, sort out food and gear and odds and ends, get my life back on track as it were. I'll get to keep hiking, hopefully with Craig. I plan to make it to Canada. I guess I won't be a 'real' thru-hiker, because I'm skipping about 600 miles in California. it doesn't matter too much to me though - I will have hiked 2000+ miles, which is something to be proud of. and I will have done a majority of it alone, which is both scary and exciting.
