28 Mar Day 1 – At last!
4.6 miles today, at milepost 4.6
Cowboy camping tonight under the stars. I didn’t start hiking until 5:10 pm. Entire day was spent traveling and waiting on buses. El Cajon transit center is a tiny bit sketchy and I hung out there for 3 hours waiting on the bus for Campo. I was a little carsick on the mountain roads, but once I started hiking I felt great!
Weather was pleasant but I started sweating with the pace I set. Also, pack weight seemed manageable even though i was loaded down with over 2 liters of water and 6 days of food.
Here 1 am at mile one. My first mile! Yippee! Only 2649 more miles. Also saving money since I am matching all donations to JDRF for every mile under 2600 that I don’t complete.
Here are railroad tracks with neat rock formations.
