Pacific Crest Trail Map

Countdown begins

The resupply boxes have been mailed, the training hikes are ongoing, and I'm notifying clients that I will be gone for three weeks. I have anticipated this hike for months and am ready to get on the trail. My sturdy hiking shoes that I have had for three months, suddenly developed a hole where my heel rubs against the lining. I thought about just bearing with it but my husband said to go get another pair - it wasn't worth getting blisters. So now I'm walking around breaking these in. I actually went a 1/2 size larger to give my toes a little bit more space. They are the same brand, Merrell Moab Ventilators, but I got the men's version instead. For the past three years after my section hike, I find that my feet have lengthened by half a size. I have also switched from Superfeet to Soles. What a difference. Excellent support!

Been watching the weather in the Sierra's - they have had a lot of thunderstorms over the past two weeks, at least the reports I have been reading. I hope they all blow away so we won't have to deal with them by the time we hit the trail next week!
