My adventure is drawing nearer and nearer.
My application to enter Canada was not approved. I made the mistake of not following directions by trimming the images of my passport and drivers license. I was worried that the files were too big, so I cropped them. I’ll re-image them and send it again.
I will start putting together my two boxes this week as well. I will send a box of food to Scout and Frodo where I am staying the night before I begin. That box will need me going for all the California Section A from the Southern Terminus to the small town of Warner Springs at mile 109.
I know that I will be eating at a restaurant at Lake Morena (mile 20), Mount Laguna (mile 41) and the Stagecoach Trails (mile 77). This means that I will not be carrying three meals per day. I’ll probably only carry breakfast, snacks and dinner.
My plan is to buy locally and ship boxes from the trail where needed. I hope to only ship boxes to 10 to 12 stops. Warner Springs is one of the places I will need to ship a box, and the only place I need to send a box in all of Southern California.
I will ship that first box on March 20th. That should get to San Diego in plenty of time for my April 6th start. I will ship my box to Warner Springs on April 2nd. With that, there is no more planning. After that, I go wit the flow.
