Dinosaur Track

Permits, Dinosaurs, and AT

My PCT permit arrived in the mail today! It was three weeks to the day I applied for it, Which is what the PCT Association promised. I had to admit I was dubious, but they came through. I am still waiting for my Canadian permit, but the PCT permit and my California fire permit mean I'm good to go.

I spent the morning hiking in Government Canyon again. I managed to do 15 miles with a full pack today so I'm on target with my training program. Interestingly, while I was taking pictures of a dinosaur track, I encountered two other guys with full backpacks. We got to talking and it turns out they are headed for the Appalachian Trail next month and were out for a training hike like me. We traded tips and talked gear and training and before I knew it we were back at the ranger station.
