Kat's Closing

Kat has been an amazing homeowner and so it is with great happiness that we have finished her home! We received the certificate of occupancy last week and will be signing closing documents tomorrow.

At just over 1100 SF it's not a mansion, but it is the home Kat has both wished for and worked so hard for.

And it's not a revolutionary step forward for the world, but it is a huge change in this guy's world.

Congratulations Kat!

Quarry Hike

Quarry Snowshoeing

Training for the PCT - aka - snowshoeing with Eliza (the new CM replacing me for Habitat). We never found the trailhead, but we found a good view!

Next Step (Again)

The Pacific Crest Trail Nat'l Geo Book
The Pacific Crest Trail (Cover) - By William R Gray, National Geographic Society

Once again, I'm coming to an ending. I still have several weeks here in Wyoming, but I have begun that process of preparing a place to land.

Or I should say, preparing an idea. Because that's what the Pacific Crest Trail is. It's an idea that encompasses geographies, ecologies, cultures and time.

Reaching out to both the Mexican border in California and the Canadian border in Washington, the PCT is 2,650 miles in length, 13,013 ft in elevation difference (not including many ups and downs in between) and six ecological zones (of seven that exist in the world).

I'll be taking that next step from Campo, California on April 22nd. And then I'll take another step, and then another. I'm not yet sure how far all the steps I'm taking will go. But I'll be sure to let you know here.

Backpacking from Stehikin 1999?

You could almost feel the trees drinking the water up with their roots. This wood was very much alive. When he tried to describe it afterward Digory always said, "It was a rich place: as rich as plumcake."

If anyone had asked him "Where did you come from?" he would probably have said, "I've always been here." That was what it felt like - as if one had always been in this place...
