Doing it legally

January 18th, 2007

Today I got approved for my American visa. I am now able to stay in America for upto six months at a time for the next 10 years. There is still uncertainty about the process of crossing into Canada via the trail and then going back through a proper check-point. Worst case senario (apart from incarceration and a cavity search) is that I have to go back to the trail and walk in the way I came out, at which point I might as well get going on a yo-yo attempt :-)

I’ve just received my copy of Yogi’s book and am still hunting for a solar panel supplier. Work has approved the time off and that’s all in writing. I should buy a plane ticket soon.

Distance today: 0 miles. Total distance: -1 miles

    Hey Craig, just refreshing my memory on where the PCT goes in Southern Oregon (where I grew up) and it goes right through the Hyatt Lake Resort, which my parents have a cabin _very_ close by. I’d love to know when you think you’d be just across the border into Oregon and have you stay with us (Sarah and I would make a trip “home” to Oregon to meet you) at my parent’s cabin. Hot shower, “Mom’s cookin’”, comfy bed, and good company. After the entire length of California I think those things will sound pretty appealing. :) Please let us know…

    It’s a deal. According to PCTPlanner.com I might be reaching Hyatt Lake Resort about July 29th, but that is based on my very rough speed estimate and weather conditions not holding me up. It’s be cool if you could join in for a few days before or after Hyatt Lake, or any where on the trail for that matter, so keep some of July free just incase :-)
