This is a photo post!
For the story of our last four days on trail leading up to the monument, check out the last blog post entitled “the last 60 miles”.
Those are fantastic! Well done and congratulations. It sounds like it was an epic ending to an amazing journey.
Congratulations! We’re so proud of you. A most impressive accomplishment.
You guys are amazing! Love all the photos at the finish monument. It was a journey to remember. Now onto the rest of life’s journeys for the three of you!
We were suprisingly dead on with the estimated dates we thought we would be at various towns… although many of our friends missed their dates by months. You may hike much slower or faster than you think… and you may end up taking a week or two off at a time for injury, or to visit home, so you really have to play it by ear.
as far as the buy as you go, and mail drop schedule, it all worked out great. you can pretty much buy as you go the entire trail..some do this.. but it seems like alot of people get to ashland, and then buy/mail their oregon maildrops from there, and then get to cascade locks (and/or get in to portland) and buy/mail all their maildrops for washington.. you can buy as you go for those two states, but you’ll have less of a selection and it may be more expensive..my two cents 🙂
