The time has actually come. We are flying out to San Diego tomorrow morning and making our way to Campo, California on Wednesday morning to start the hike. As promised, here is a picture of all our boxes packed and pretty much ready to go. There are 33 total boxes going to 21 different locations along the trail. The polka dots on the side of boxes is our way to try to distinguish our boxes from the other hundreds of boxes that will be sitting at the mail drop locations.
Along with this blog, don't forget to check out our "Where are We Now" link on our website (http://www.timandgerri.com/where-are-we-now.html). Here you will be able to see a map of where we spent each night on the trail and watch our progress. Our progress will be slow going to start since we are planning on only going 10 miles per day (relative to others who start out in better shape who'll do 20 miles to start - we'll get there eventually).
