July 10th

I am getting antsy to get back on the trail now. My blisters are history, I've re-organized my food packages and schedule and made arrangements to stash my truck outside Ashland (thanks R&D). I hope my legs can manage the projected 15 mile days but whatever happens I plan to enjoy myself. Clearly I'm not much of a Type A personality.

I've heard the snow has been pretty high in Oregon throughout the early summer so I hope I don't have to do too much tromping through the slush. On the other hand, melted snow means mosquitoes so I guess it's six of one...

I'm leaving for a trip south to visit family in a couple of days. Riverside in summer; what was I thinking? Maybe it'll toughen me up ;-)
