Less than a month until I start the Pacific Crest Trail, and I’ve got to get in shape! This month I’m doing a series of 15 to 20 mile hikes near home. On the most recent outing, a 17-mile transect over Bear Mountain near my house in Creswell, I discovered a new appreciation for the map and GPS technology in my new iPhone (i.e. I didn’t get as lost as I might have). And today, for the first time, I’m posting this blog entry directly from my phone.
If all goes well I will be able to post constant updates this way from the trail. In any case, though, I’ll be hiking north from Mexico in about three weeks. Can’t wait!
