Our first PCT video is ready! We'll be posting these as a blog along with a synopsis of our daily mini blogs for those who want to catch up by date in order (Auntie Alice :)). It's a little harder to edit video from a phone, but I think it turned out okay!
Update: Today we had an easy 5 miles into a road where we had pre-arranged a ride from the legendary Trail Angel, Doug. He filled the 14 mile ride into Trout Lake with lots of Intel on the area and instilled in us a great respect for the amazing support this small town offers to us thruhikers. We're currently staying in a back room of the local grocery store! I know how it sounds, but it's SUPER NICE! There's laundry, and showers, and...ROBES! We were also treated to an amazing care package from our Road Trip USA students! Thanks kids (and Mrs. Ricketts!!)
Update: We began with chilly rain this morning, kind of a bummer considering many only get 1-3 days of rain the entire PCT and this was our 3rd rain in 5 days! However, it did dry up by the afternoon so the mosquitoes could come get their snack...lol. All kidding aside, it was actually a lovely day, our biggest miles to date, and not too difficult. Our short days have allowed us ample time to enjoy our campsites and have fires. Even today, we were in camp by 3pm. It's been good to start feeling the trail legs kicking in. We're already moving steadily between 2.5 and 3 mph, which is pretty good. We camped again tonight with Magic Pack. Tomorrow we head into our first resupply town! Trout Lake!
