Finally in America!

So we arrived in Seattle after 23 hours of travelling with minimal sleep. We were exhausted while trying to buy food and pack our resupply boxes and trying to buy the last of the gear we need. But finally we are all set to start hiking!

Seattle is such a beautiful city, filled with horizons of snow capped mountains, lovely trees filled with spring blossoms, gorgeous parks and chilly fresh air. However, it is a bit strange to be in a foreign country, it’s a bit of a culture shock. The use of the English language, the accent and the culture of excessiveness is pronounced.

Today we fly to San Diego and get picked up and lifted to Campo to start the trail. We are relieved and excited that the day has finally arrived after much anticipation! We’ll probably hike about 10 miles and dry camp. The next time you hear from us will be when we’re in a town with wifi, within the next week.

Wow we’re finally starting! Thank you for all the love, prayers and support, it’s much appreciated 🙂
