  1. All of your posts are such an inspiration! Love your brutal honesty on the trail. Keep it up, I wait everyday to see if there are any new blog entries! If you need anything in Dunsmuir, I’m south a small bit but I’ll help you out if you need… I feel as though you’re now a friend 🙂

    • Thanks Woooner you rock!! It certainly isn’t all rainbows out here on the trail but it definitely is an experience of a lifetime! Are you a hiker too? I guess I can call myself that now! 🙂 So glad you’re inspired as that’s one of my main goals for being out here!! Will let you know if I need anything closer to Dunsmuir! Thank you! 🙂

  2. Hi Rozanne! I would love to see this revised keeping everything you have and adding another column called “reality”… I want to know how everything played out with gear changes, snow items needed, etc.
