life post-PCT

I can’t believe we’ve been off the PCT for almost a month!

Bubba Keg & wheels - what more do you need?

In that month we spent a few peaceful days at Wyatt’s home in Wenatchee, Washington before unexpectedly having to fly to LA because my grandparent’s home there had sold in 1 day! There went our plan of living there for a few months! So, along w/my aunt and uncle, we did some blitz cleaning, sorting and packing and loaded up 2 moving vans.

Ironically our cross-country trip through California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Virgina was almost the exact same length as the PCT. In 5 days of driving we covered the same distance it had taken us 5 months to walk! And even though the road trip offered us luxuries we rarely enjoyed on the trail (unlimited food, hot showers, soft bed, AC), I’ll pick hiking  over trucking any day… that’s sunny.

And since we were rushing to make sure we made it back in time to see Steph & James wed, we didn’t have much time to sight-see.  We did go running in the Petrified Forest and on the AT and we saw E in Nashville, Pete in b’burg. But next time we’re not going to miss the Grand Canyon!
