I think I've spent enough time stopping to smell the roses this winter and spring. Now it's crunch time, 30 days to go. I finally mailed off my Canada entry and PCT permit this afternoon. Yes, I'm late as usual, but hopefully not too late. My smog test is done and I have my license plate stickers coming in the mail. I became a member at Cosco last week and now must begin the food purchase. I started packing up my room a bit this evening which brought an assortment of strange feelings I wasn't expecting to experience. I came across old letters, notes, newspaper articles, pictures, papers where I had written goals and "to do" lists. Many goals and dreams accomplished, many not. Old song lyrics, good and bad. Directions written down on old envelopes of places when I first moved to LA and knew nothing about the city. Anyways, enough of that.
There is still a lot to do. Taxes are due on the 15th. I've got to put my belongings in storage, pay bills, help my current roommate find a new tenant to move into the apartment. Make last minute gear purchases, organize resupply. Print resumes, finish work. Oh yeah, and get ready to hike a trail.
