Pacific Crest Trail Map

Planning, Spending, Walking, still waiting

Today was another Saturday morning working in the restaurant industry. People need their coffee. Based on my experience wearing shoes that are slightly uncomfortable I estimate I walk between 2 and 4 miles in the course of a day of work, because my feet start to hurt about the same as when I walk 2-4 miles, but maybe the standing is what really does it. Gear note of the day: I love superfeet at work and plan on wearing them on the trail (I can work double shifts= 12-15 hours of work without foot pain, or back pain for that matter). Still don't know in what pair of shoes.

Lately I've been thinking a lot about stoves, resupply, gear and other similar topics. Last week I spent $ 800 on gear that I didn't own and thought/think I need(ed). That was a little bit more than I intended and am experiencing buyer's regret. Perhaps I'll do some returning? I'm glad I didn't try to force the sewing my own gear issue. I tried and got way too frustrated in failing to achieve my standards. I'm still open to trying again though. I've made myself a little schedule for when I'm going to tackle certain problems. Monday: Stove day, with dad Tuesday: Hiking or Resupply (depending on if I get to that on Monday). Wednesday: Hiking or more food and travel planning.

Soon it will be time to get up again and go to work. Holding all these things at once is far more enjoyable than taking an either or position. Tension! Circus!
