I have my itinerary planned out from one supply pick-up point to the next one. Here is the rough plan, but it may change with weather, hiking speed and other crazy unforeseen circumstances. I’ve planned it out at an average of 20 miles a day, but hoping to go faster than that for the majority of the trail…we’ll see! You can see a map of the entire trail here.

**A lot of the supply pick-up points are resorts and hotels…I know that makes it sound like a really fancy stroll in the woods from one resort to the next but, for the most part, I’m just picking my stuff up and heading back out on the trail…unless I smell REALLY bad. Then I might stop and take a shower. Again…we’ll see!

  1. And you are in the middle of where I used to hike all,the time, Salton Sea, going up through the higher California desert in the next few days. It is beautiful down there this time of year!
