Day 96 – Kevin

Zero Miles

Kevin, my youngest of three sons, will be joining me on the trail after the wedding. He plans to hike through Oregon and Washington, to the Canadian border. We just have a couple of days to go over his gear and purchase our resupplies. Luckily, Brian has offered Kevin the use of his gear. Since Brian and I worked together planning our PCT hike, I am very familiar with the gear.


Food is tricky because there are not as many good resupply locations in Oregon and Washington. My plan was to make multiple resupply boxes in Ashland, and ship them forward. The same strategy applied to Cascade Locks. Now that I am home a few days, Kevin and I are trying to do as much of the shopping and packaging as time will allow. Terri will then have to ship for us, and probably complete some additional purchases.


In addition to my trail planning work, Terri has a short honey-do list that involves changing the oil in the Pilot, fixing the garage door, and replacing a leaky faucet. Number one son Daniel helps with the first two items.

It is great to be home, but also very strange. For some odd reason, not walking has me absolutely exhausted.
