Friends who know I’m headed to the PCT this week ask me whether I’m excited; the answer is YES!!!
I mailed off two resupply packages, and I have two packed up, addressed, and ready to go once I get close enough. Having help at home means that I can swap things out if I find that I need something unexpected or don’t need something I intended to ship. I took photos of each resupply box’s contents to help me remember what I will have when I pick it up. This was probably a suggestion from a fellow backpacker, but I’ve long since forgotten who gave me the idea.
I practice-pitched my new shelter a few times. My pack is assembled and ready to go. My to-do list is quickly vanishing.
I know I will miss home very much, but I’m ready to get this thing started.
Next stop, Campo.
