Nick Eaton Ridge partial loop

1 Month till start

1 month to go before we begin at Seiad Valley.

Did a good physical training hike with Gracie out on Nick Eaton Ridge yesterday. Made me wonder still if I should prepare to switch to a sturdier shoe or insert from the Altras, but the majority of the PCT will ba much tamer path than some of the steep, rocky, and/or brushy trails that I have been on this spring. It will be interesting to see how long a fresh pair of Lone Peaks last starting in N California, as my first pair are quite worn down after 100 miles in AZ in March, and about half of my training miles since then.

This morning I bagged up some breakfast mixes. These are meant to be usually a cold cereal consisting of hemp hearts, buckwheat, chia seeds, fruit (either dried meddley / strawberry / craisin / peach), dried coconut, coconut milk powder, brown sugar or honey crystals. Each quart bag is a few servings depending on hunger and is ready to eat after a few minutes in cold water.

Kirah is in Canada til tomorrow evening. Hope to get much of the resupply boxes and gear items wrapped u this coming week. Several last minute gear and supply items are on their way. We'll also probably go out for a night or two up a Gorge trail to test the ZPacks tarp with both of us. Then we will hit the Enchantments for a long weekend. If weather and conditions allow I'd like to get into the southern side of Olympic National Park where some of the snow has receded, before we hit the PCT.
