This is it.  I buzzed Emily's head today!  We fly to San Diego this evening, then catch a ride to the southern terminus 40 miles east on Wednesday morning.  Holy cow... we are super excited, a little bit nervous, and eager to take the first step.  PCT here we come!     


    Chris-I will call Mom tomorrow so I can say farewell and happy trails to you two!

  2. Good luck, we'll see you in Portland.

  3. Sweet! I shaved my head the day we started, and it was the best thing I could have done - it was HOT for those first weeks... I'm bummed I didn;t get a chance to talk to you before you started, but have a blast. Tomorrow's the big day! Feel free to give me a call anytime you're in town or need a conversation - it's nice to have someone who understands...

    And don't give in to the temptation to spend the next four months in Mexico. That crossed our minds a lot the first couple of weeks - although there was no one else on the trail when we started, so I'm sure the group energy will make it a lot more bearable.

    All right, good luck, walk well, and give me a call sometime.


  4. Emily you are amazing! And look great too :) Best trails, we are thinking of you and look forward to the updates!

  5. I LOVE LOVE the hair! I am thinking of you and all the girls at work are fascinated by your trip! I love you both so much!
