Pacific Crest Trail Map

Getting to the Trail

Ed and I flew in to Reno as planned on the 27th, then on the 28th spent something on the order of 10 hours taking Greyhound buses to get to Redding CA via Sacramento, with the full measure of pleasure and luxury concomitant with long distance bus travel in the U.S.

Tomorrow is Friday June 29th, and we plan to take a regional bus to get to the town of Burney. There we will have a final "town lunch", buy a fuel canister (can't fly with one of those!), and then a scheduled taxi ride will get us to our trailhead, where the trail crosses highway 89.

So just getting to the trailhead is somewhat of a pain in the butt. But taking the pain upfront means that at the end of the trip it shouldn't be bad at all.

and speaking of pains in the butt, Ed reports that just before leaving home he somehow managed to pull a muscle in... you guessed it... his buttock. Points for creativity if he's just trying to set up an excuse. I promised I wouldn't make a lot of jokes about it or give him crap about it in general.

I almost certainly lied.
