Update: On Track

Soooo clearly, I’m quite behind on these posts. Turns out that trying to write for Backpacker and my regular job back home and you fine folks while attempting 25+ mile days is a bit more challenging than I first anticipated. I wanted to let y’all know that I am still, in fact, on trail, and still, in fact, on track to finish – hopefully by the end of September. Oregon is treating me kindly, and I’m looking forward to Washington, too.

I am going to keep writing and posting, albeit probably at the same snail’s pace I’ve been recently. I’m taking super-detailed notes on each day – and between those and the pictures it’s pretty easy to reconstruct things as they were. Being down to the wire, as it were, I have to put finishing first, as much as I would love to write write write in lieu of some of this walking.

I will finish blogging about my hike, don’t fret – and I’ll hopefully succeed in hitting my fundraising goals for Big City Mountaineers. I’ve even got a stretch goal and reward planned, assuming y’all like people dancing in silly costumes. Meanwhile, thanks for sticking around – I’ve got so many more stories to tell you, and I’m happy you’re here to hear them.

    Great to know! I just said to my wife last night, “She’s way behind to get to the northern Cascades before the snows.” Good to know its not your hiking but your posting that’s behind.

    Hi BG, Thanks for posting your trail blogs and IG pictures! You mentioned the Backpacker postings. Is the subscription required to read them? My kindle froze on clicking a post!

    Stay safe and much blessings onward to Canada!

      I like to – mostly for me, to be honest. I like having a more-specific record of things, and being able to remember the little things that seem like everything at the time.

        Sometime it is better to do what you can do, rather than what you want or feel you aught to do. When I’m on the trail, I might get a one sentence highlight in my phone before I fall asleep. I couldn’t do what you have been doing. Still hoping there’s a book!
