Pacific Crest Trail Map
Departure-Day minus 14.
Am now as prepared as I'm going to be.
Got all my permits (US visa, hiking permit, California campfire permit,
permit to enter Canada on foot).
Got a flight (13th April).
Got a start date (17th April).
Got a pile of maps (Halfmile = hero!).
Got enough tech to keep me happy (phone, GPS, camera, emergency rescue
Got a load of food waiting to be sorted into resupply parcels when I arrive
in USA. If there's a shortage of Mountain House meals and Clif bars at
REI, it's because I've bought them all!
And most importantly, have got my friends in Ridgecrest, CA. They have
already gone beyond the call of duty! Sorted my phone purchase in USA (a
lot harder to do than it should be), are storing all my purchases until I
arrive, will be posting my food parcels out for me to collect and will be
delivering these in person in southern CA. John & Charlotte - I couldn't
have got this far without you!!
