Strolling in San Diego

April 16th, 2007

I’ve done some more exploring today. I walked from my hosts’ house to REI (3rd visit in 3 days, my wallet hurts!) and managed not to get hit by those crazy drivers on the wrong side of the road, arrested for jay-walking or die in a hail of bullets*. I did hear a couple of gun shots but on closer inspection it was a nail gun and the guy was a qualified builder, panic over. With the purchase of some new underwear**, a 1 gram razor*** and a lot of dry pasta meals I am now ready to send off my first care package and sit on the door step waiting for the data logger. I thought you might like to know what I’m doing with my time here so I’ve taken a photo of my organizing efforts and one of of Barney and Sandy’s. Can you guess which room is used by someone who only turned up a few days ago?

stuff everywheremeasured and weighed

*this is not a joke. Lots of people asked me if I’d be bringing a gun, some of them were referring to the bear danger
**quick drying for all the sweat and the occasional bear!
***1 gram razor Not recommended. It hardly works, and when it does you wish it didn’t. So it’s a beard for me

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

    I’m so jealous! seeing all your prep makes me want to start another walk.
    Good to see that you lost the razor Craig. Go the beard!

    Hey Craig,

    Just been catching up on your blog (only got the link to it today) and wanted to wish you the best on your travels – I think that it is an awesome thing to do and I am sure you of all people will achieve it!

    Take care of yourself though and know that we are all thinking of you!

    Love Bex

    Hmmm, have you got some self-cleaning underwear in case its a really, really big bear?
