Wingman from the Roadside: Spent way too much time watching the tracker and Runningbird navigate to where there was supposed to be a water cache. It was painful. Well there was water, and she did find it. It’s easy for me to worry. I had to make myself busy so I repositioned to a spot closer to the Pass. I spent a lot of time reading and doing crossword puzzles. And watching ants.
A recently retired Chemical Engineer, I am fulfilling a long held dream to hike the 2664 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail. This dream was very nearly siderailed last year when my femur shattered in a freak fall. Only through the unfailing love and support of my family and friends am I able to begin this journey. David VanHandel, my ever patient partner is providing support throughout the journey, a task perhaps more difficult than mine. View all posts by Halfhandle
