Paper Work, Maps, & Permits

I printed out the 1/2 mile section maps and secured them in Zip-Locks. Seemed easy enough until I got started and ran out of paper, then my color cartridge went dry. Once I had some sections printed I started to insert them in the Zip-Lock bags, back to the office store for a paper cutter. Finally I was progressing, wait, my black cartridge went dry. I was glad to get this done in one day.

I received my Long Distance Permit in the mail today, the letter stated I was one step closer to my journey. I have my California Campfire Permit, passed the test on my second attempt. Carl sent me an email with my campsite assignment for the ADZPCTKO for the 26th and 27th, tings are looking pretty good.

I have filled out the paper work for my passport so I can leave Canada, once I get there, and the USPS informed me I would need to schedule an appointment for the passport due to budget cuts. My appointment is the 16th and my flight to San Diego is the 25th. No cause for anxiety, they also informed me to process could be expedited for additional fees. Maybe this will help make up for the budget cuts and help out the USPS.

My household possessions are diminishing and it feels good to clear the clutter. At the same time my daughter's house is looking very familiar, that's weird. I now have the room to set up my tent in the living room and sleep in it while cooking mainly on my camp stove and eating camp food.

It was very foggy this today for my early morning walk. There is light snow in the forecast for Thursday, I thought it was Spring. I can't wait to get to Southern California to experience some warmer weather. The last time I was in San Diego I lived right next to the airport, was a part of something called the "Green Machine", and my bosses or DIs affectionately referred to me as "Sec-ra-bitch." Good times...
