Entering into Washington was a surreal feeling. As if achieving something you never knew if you would. I’ve also been sure all this time that it’d be my favorite state. It’s well on it’s way being just that. One of the first notable things I saw in Washington. Is this a sign? It’s supposed to be an eclipse… The forests are deep and we are not the only ones who dwell in them. I ran […]

In Oregon me and Simba had to skip about 45 miles due to forest fires. That was demoralizing, but we had heard that Oregon is known for its fires. What we didn’t know is that Washington can burn as well. Now a part of Washington is closed because of a recent fire. And we thought this whole time that once we got to the last state, it’d be smooth sailing to Canada. Yesterday the smoke […]

Once again there was a trail magic operation, this one with beautiful horses! We […]

I ended up walking 8 miles in the wrong direction. […]

So. I’ve finished the state of Oregon. Mile 1689 to 2144. Day 97 to 122. Here’s a summary of that. Split in three parts. Weird sperm-looking plants. My first day in Oregon was one of the best so far. I started it out with getting soda from a trail magic cooler. Basically the entire day was filled with trail magic. I guess I enjoy free food. Oh well. Throughout the day I was high on […]
