Pacific Crest Trail Map

Leaving Los Angeles

Although Sean, Los Angeles, and Long Beach are all wanting us to stay, we must push forward and do what we came to do. I still cannot get over at how awesome the weather is here on the coast of California, it is so beautiful and spectacular. Not only is the weather beautiful but the people here are quite nice as well

We woke up this morning thinking we would make it to San Bernardo to catch the bus there at 1:15, but boy were our estimations off course. It took us a while to pack up everything and double check that we had all our equipment, so we didn't even make it out of the apartment until like 11:30. Then we got hunger so Sean took us to a final and delicious place to eat named Lee's Sandwiches and I totally logged out on a bad ass Turkey Club with Bacon. By the time we finished with the sandwiches it was like 12:20 and we figured we would wait until the 5:30 Big Bear Bus.

The whole time I have been in LA I have not realized the real amount of time I am actually spending on the trins Metro busses. Even when we left the restaurant at 12:20 I calculated that we would make it to San Bernardo around 5:20 which is an extreamly close call. We haven't arrived there yet as I am writing this on the train now, its about 3:45 and I feel we have a way to go. Hopefully we will make it.
