I’m at 38 miles from the start, just two miles short of hobart bluff Today was a little easier. I just have to remember that I don’t have to do a min number of miles. I just walk until I’m tired, rest (maybe for an hour) and walk some more if I feel like it. […]

Day one!

This morning I had breakfast with Mary Jane and Aaron in Eugene. Then Aaron drove me to the California/Oregon border. We got a little turned around on the back roads but finally made it. Now I’m about three miles into the hike. I’ll do another mile or two then find a place to stop for […]
