Thanks so much for your support!
I am now in Agua Dulce, 200 miles into my hike from walker pass. Only 450 miles left to the border.
I'm staying tonight at a "trail angel's" place. To this point the trail has been pretty lonely, but today I caught up with 2 other Southbounders: Soup Sandwich and Coach K. Maybe I will hike with them for a while.
All of the letters on the banner are already within 8 or 10 stitches from falling off- I'm safety pinning them back on tonight.
Weather has been great during the day (though very windy), and cold at night. Not much water in this section- sometimes 15- 20 miles between sources, and these sources can be pretty nasty.. however, people have left water caches for hikers at jeep roads that I have been able to rely on.
The current plan is to display the banner at the Reading Room in Dallas in January- more to come on this. Also the DVDs, prints, and id's won't be ready for at least a few months I will keep in touch about this as well.
