Pacific Crest Trail Map

Where am I?

Okay, so my first attempt at posting my location via GPS and through Pocketmail failed. I typed in a longitude of 117 rather than 17 and it said I was somewhere in Europe. I couldn't figure it out at first but eventually found my mistake.

Today consisted of many more hours of route planning and Guidebook recreation...I hole punched all the pages and used book rings to put together the sections of the Guidebook, PCT data books, Hiker's Companion, and Yogi's guide. I also figured out which mail drops each packet needs to be sent to so that I'll have it at the right time.

I e-mailed Laurie Braaten (a trail angel in Belden..nor cal-ish). She replied quickly and said she would be able to have me stay the night, and told me to call when I am nearby.

Trail angels, by the way, are extremely nice and generous people that help out PCT hikers along the way. Some of them will bring coffee or food to people on the trail, others give their information and host hikers at their houses for a night. I'm sure I will greatly appreciate their generosity.

So, now that I have correctly entered the latitude and longitude information, you should be able to see where I am.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to update this journal every day...there will be journal entries for almost every day, but they will all be posted in 5 day blocks. Basically, whenever I can get to a telephone is when they will be posted.
