View Full Version : Back in the (Olympic) saddle again

I've been back from the CDT for a little while now. Got closure with the (now ex-)girlfriend and feel better than I have for more than a month. In fact, I felt so good that on Thursday I headed out to the Olympics for a wee 80 mile hike. This was one of my lazier hikes, but I had a great time. In fact, I was happy in the outdoors for the first time since March in the Grand Canyon. Met a really cool cat who was out for 2 weeks. His food consisted of 5 lbs of rice (which he ate raw as he didn't have a stove or a pot), a jar of peanut butter, some jerky, and a can of cheeze whiz.

Check out


for all the details. Lots of photos and far too many words. I've got big plans for the rest of the summer, so check back at the website occasionally.

Oh, I should mention that for the first time in more than 2 years, I no longer have a beard.

What the....
raw rice? PB? and Jerky and plastic cheeze?
I guess the guy didn't bring any "moon floss", huh?
