OREGON! Mile 1720

August 2, 2010

Well I’m in Oregon! Finally. The past few weeks have been a little rough. I had shin splints and then my stomach went south. I took antibiotics for parasites, that made me feel bad still, but we were still doing 30 mile days. Now things are starting to look better. Oregon has been amazing so far. The people are nice, the land is flat. There is going to be some good swimming in rivers and lakes hopefully too.

The rest of Cali was kind of hot and kind of buggy. Highlights:
Saw a baby bear, 4 feet from me sleeping at the base of a tree, the mama probably abandoned it, it looked scraggly.

Watching awesome salamanders that had red bellies in the water. Those were awesome! We lost a few miles that day from looking at the salamanders in the lake.

Saw a fire being fought not so far away by helicopters.

Hoping to finish up Oregon pretty quick, then on to Washington and Canada. Sorry the updates haven’t been that frequent, computers have been sparse.

    Hi Kerry, congrats on making it to Oregon. I’m heading out tomorrow to Oregon to meet Guthook. Should start hiking from Ashland on Saturday. Hope you’re well. Looks like I’m going to miss you as you are already in Ashland. Keep on keeping on!
