Pacific Crest Trail Map


And then there were two, two states that is. Finally made it to Oregon yesterday afternoon and am happily enjoying town and food I don't have to carry today. I crossed the border with a hiker named Tuna Helper who is currently attempting the speed record. I spent a couple days hiking with him and I am worn out - I've been up until midnight three nights in a row and logging a week solid of 40 mile days. I am sorry that these journals have become primarily a location update to my progress and haven't been more stories of the journey but I have become obsessed with efficiency durin town stops and the journalism time has taken the biggest hit. I guess I will have to share the stories about the rain and snow, and sharing a gas station restroom with a shackled felon in person. For now I am going to keep pushing - the rest of the trail looks like it can feasibly be completed in just three and a half weeks from here.
