HikeStrong 2010 Team PCT
We headed out Saturday about noon and made it down to Old Station, CA to help out the Heitman's (trail angels) late Sunday afternoon. Stayed there a day, got alot of work done for them and headed south again on Tues. I would usually say taking the scenic route is the way to go, but we crammed all four of us in the front of a pickup and needless to say it's been an interesting trip down.

Lat night we arrived in El Centro and checked into a hotel. When I pulled the covers back on the beds, there were bed bugs everywhere. We tried just switching rooms but same thing. Yeh we were pretty freaked out. So we decided to just do another place. I still quiver when I think about it...yuk! The place we ended up staying in is really nice...and CLEAN! Got some authentic Mexican from the place down the street...mmmmm!

We will head down to kickoff in Lake Morena later today. The weather is stormy, it will be an interesting start. Last year it was hot and sunny. I fear when winter is finally over. The snakes are gonna be seriously grumpy. Sun we will start heading north and hopefully make it to Warner Springs by Thurs. I know that myself and the Norwegian can easily make it, but my daughter Typhanie, who is not a hiker, will be hiking til there along with us. I'm excited for her to see what it is like, even though only for a short time.
