Poor Julien's hotel room looks like a food & gear bomb exploded in it. We are doing our supply drops there. Just easier since I have a full house and no room to spread out.
We are still keeping our fingers crossed that the missing package that contains 600 energy bars shows up soon.
Me with my organic peanut butter and piled on me, oat meal, Hummus, lentail mix, dried fruit and dried split pea soup mix. Behind me my wheat free crackers and 13 cases of energy bars, clif bloks and clif shots. It should last me 78 days. I will be stopping for fresh fruit at every store we pass along our journey.
Julien with lot's of food. Cous Cous, nuts, lot's of peanuts, cookies, powdered energy pudding mix and 78 flasks of gel oh and dried fruit.

Hey, best of luck on the PCT!! I have enjoyed reading your blog for some time. You have also gotten me very interested in crossfit and there is one in atlanta. In a nutshell, can you tell me whats involved in becoming a trainer there? Thanks, Jon

Wow! I hope you have some loving friends who will meet you along the trail and make you a hot meal occasionally.

I remember on the CDT eventually getting tired of the monotony of same meals same snacks. Since I wasn't trying to set a record, I would occasionally deviate from plan and hike or hitch into a town just for a hot meal made by someone else! Wish I lived along your route I would definitely pack you in some fresh grub.

Oh my gosh, Classic picture of you surrounded by all your food. I'm serious, I think I'm going to keep running long distances just so I can EAT tasty food. :)
Will you and Julien be carrying all that? Or do you have a crew to help?

Oh my gosh! That is amazing to me, all that food, and all those zip bags. Especially Julien -- LOL Lots and lots of planning for each of you. I certainly hope his power bars show up. I'll keep my fingers crossed too. ;)
The hair ROCKS! It's so you. What I want to know is, how the heck did you sit for eight hours while it was being done? I can barely stand my 2+ hour hair appointment every other month. Boomer and I hope to see you too, before you leave. I miss you, but also know how incredibly busy you have been.

Hey Catra,
Now you just need to have Julien get a mohawk and die it a really bright color.
It will grow back anyway and he'll probably enjoy it in the southern portion.
I know I saw some tattos on him but com'n you've got get this kid get up to speed with you.
Sorry Julien.

Best of luck to the both of you!

Mmmmmmm, food, food and more food. I thought planning for one week required a fair amount. Just goes to show you can always go further. Good luck on the PCT, I'll be following on the blog.
