We’ve passed the halfway mark on the OCT as we wait for snow on the PCT to melt. We’ve now been thru-hiking for two months, and have hiked 800 miles. (Published on 5/31/23.)
Lookout for bigfoot out there
The OCT sounds WONDERFUL! Love following along!
I look forward to reading your updates! Thank you for sharing this wonderful journey with all of us.
absolutely ADORE when new PCT/OCT content hits my inbox. cheering you on and being massively inspired by Pudding and KarMMa! doing my best to help Brit get settled into SF so that when you arrive home, there's nothing left for you to do but enjoy having her on the west coast :)
Nice work you guys. I’m impressed by the photo. Body’s might have a slight aches inside, but looking good on the outside! Nice work on sun protection! Sunscreen must not weigh that much. The coast brings back memories of no wind days in the Gorge.
I've never been to Brookings. Do you need a ride somewhere from there? Maybe Bend? Annie is doing better, relatively open calendar though the rest of the month.
Loved this newsletter! (And the last one but I did not get around to find time to write comments! ) I particularly enjoy the fact that when I read it, I really have the feeling I hear your voice saying it ex: “cause we’re 60….!!!. I I do love the details and your sense of humour (KarMMa hesitating to get out of the car and you think he deserves your gear if if was a scam!). And what is it about the fact you keep meeting people living in Bend? Is it that big? Good job with pct and oct, good plan!
Just LOVE following along....savoring every morsel along the way....Gib and Kris you are just amazing AND 60! Thank you SO very much for sharing your adventure with us!
