Coming to America

April 14th, 2007

So I’m here in San Diego at last. Just 50 miles from the start of the trail. The flight was fine, I was so tired I managed to sleep through most of it, only having time for one and a half movies, and eat. But the train was not so fine. I was there on time, the train was about 3.5 hours late. So late that the 2, 4 and 5pm trains all got hooked together as one that eventually got me to Solana Beach at 7:40pm where the wonderful Jim & Jan were waiting for me. They’ve fed and watered me and now I’m going to sleep at Barney & Sandy’s house. Tomorrow I get to open all the packages I have sent here, camera, Dirty Girl Gaiters, permits and books. Then I go to REI!

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