That, and she wins the award for worst smelling feet on the trail. We were making the last miles into Cascade Locks, and each making our cases for what we wanted to do for the last state.

I was star struck when I found out they lived in Portland and that we had mutual friends.
I officially met them both at Lindsey’s PCT art exhibition at The Lizard Lounge.

His worst quality is that he hogs the food container at dinner (we shared one), but really, he probably will say the same thing about me.

I remember our biggest fight on trail occurring on our last day of hiking in Oregon.Miyagi: Dave’s best quatlity is his ability to let things go and roll with the punches.Sometimes I found myself getting lost in the logistics of the trail, or shit getting broken, or things wanting to kill me.I remember a hundred lovely lakes, and recall the fragrant breath of pine and fir and cedar and poplar trees.The trail has strung upon it, as upon a thread of silk, opalescent dawns and saffron sunsets.It has given me blessed release from care and worry and the troubled thinking of our modern day.
