I first hiked the Pacific Crest Trail over the course of 1994 and 1996, then I hiked the whole thing in one go in 2013. During the latter hike I kept this website updated as I progressed up the trail. I still have about 45 hours of video to edit, but in the meantime there is a lot for you to look at here. Over the course of the 168 days I wrote 143,823 words and put 13,644 photos on this website.
Ms. Freddie is up to her usual routine of crawling into bed with us at 5am. Even if the town is different she does the same thing. We walked her to the coffee shop and later had pie for breakfast.
I spent the day doing a lot of computer busy work, getting my hard drives backed up. I was a bit disappointed that I've only taken 384gigs of photos and video by this point. I thought it was a lot more.
We went down to the river in the afternoon and went swimming. Freddie was more comfortable around the water this time, just because she could go in and out as she pleased. Eventually she went out into the center of the river and floated down a bit, around some rocks, and then back up onto the shore. The cute thing was that she did this a couple of time as if she were saying "oh...maybe I will take another lap at this 'swimming thing'"
Chris cooked again and we had a large dinner of all kinds of things.
[apologies for no photos for today, I forgot to upload photos before clearing off my phone]
