Training

Pacific Crest Trail Map

You gotta start somewhere!

It's really happening. I've filled out my permit application and my request to enter Canada. The tendonitis in my foot is 95 % healed. I have most of my gear and my resupply plan is complete, though still undergoing constant revision. I've used up four ink cartridges printing out some beautiful maps (thanks, Halfmile!) and spent dozens, perhaps hundreds of hours happily and intensely researching this trail, dreaming about the summer.

Today began my official training. Yes, it was just an hour. Yes, my pack couldn't have weighed more than 20 pounds. Yes, it was quite literally a walk in the park. But ya gotta start somewhere! For me, that means getting an hour free here and there for walks with a loaded pack around Hermann or Memorial Park. Ignoring the stares and responding briefly but cheerfully to the comments, "That's a big pack". "Yup, it is!"

Pacific Crest Trail - 2011

"So in search of love and laughter, I'll be traveling cross this land
Never sure of where I'm going, for I haven't any plan,
So in time when you are ready, come and join me, take my hand,
And together we'll spend life out on the loose."

from On The Loose, Author unknown
