Pacific Crest Trail Map

Introduction

Introduction:

My name is David Dean. My girlfriend Laura and I plan on hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Manning Park, BC all the way Bridge of the Gods in our home state of Oregon. It will be about 500 total miles and we are dedicating the entire month of September for our trip.

Today I successfully tested updating my journal using an SMS service called IPIPI.com. It worked well except that it automatically generates the subject line to include my name and phone number. I sent them a support request and hopefully they will change that behavior.
Today is my last day of work before the trip so from here on out I will be be entirely focused on prep. We plan to leave on Sunday and I have a lot more preparation to do.
