For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.
—ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON
Train travel is luxurious! Super comfy, roomy seats and it goes smooth and fast. It does help that I have 2 seats to myself. My backpack is my partner.
I have just finished reading the details of the trail tomorrow in the PCT Guidebook and Eric the Black’s Trail Atlas. This is brand new country for me and travels north for quite some distance through the Klamath Mountains. It also said that there is A LOT of poison oak. I have only seen photos of this unpleasant plant. I did bring high powered poison oak medicine and wash. Needless to say I am thrilled and nervous. I have a few goals for the next few weeks that I am going to try my hardest to attain.
TRY NOT TO LOSE ANYTHING
Gain back presence, appreciation, observation, and singleness that I so loved on the PCT last summer.
Stay healthy! I had quite a scare after the Sierras so I now know that I can get very sick. A new concept.
Thank you BIG for reading along and for the encouraging and motivating comments.
