Arriving at the San Diego Airport

at the Mann's...

Brent's last day of work was today. Dad and I picked him up at about 2:30, and headed straight to the airport. The flight was fine, but we felt strangely unladen. Brent kept checking his pockets because they felt so empty. I kept thinking that i'd lost my purse, but really everything was just in my pockets.

We got into San Diego a little ahead of time, picked up our backpacks, and Sandy Mann was there to pick us up, feed us, put us up for the night, and her husband, Scout, will take us to the trail in the morning. This whole Trail Angel thing is pretty cool. I'm liking it. There are a few other hikers here tonight: John, who's done the PCT once already, is a kiwi, and has a cute accent, Laura and Eric, who are from Portland, OR, but who don't know Shilpi and Ben, and Samantha, who's already hiked the Appalachian trail, and isn't even done with college yet.

We'll be carrying about 5 liters of water apeice tomorrow, and it's supposed to be warm, but not hot. Tomorrow i will be sleeping under a tarp.

So here's the general update: we start tomorrow, we're not dead yet, and everything is fine.
