6 million steps to Canada.
I left out of Hollywood on the 22nd and got picked up in San Diego by Sara and stayed at Scout and Frodos house (trail angels). Sara drove me to the border and we met up with lots of other hopeful hikers. There I met Moleman and John, we did a big 20 miles to lake Morena where the big hiker kick off party was being held and spent 2 days there. Although I just rode my bike across the country, there is no shape like being in thru-hiker shape. Getting stronger is always an uncomfortable process.
The sun is hot, the water is scarce, what can I say? It's beautiful out here and I wouldn't have it any other way.
