There are several people whom I really couldn't do this trip without. First and foremost, I am so incredibly lucky and blessed to have my very own Trail Angel. CJ, who is in Seattle. Not only is she the one buying all my food, packaging them, and sending me my resupply boxes, she is also foster caring for my entire clan of animals! Basically, this is like having a part-time job til early October.
Also, thank you Jerod, Jen and Matty, for letting me store all my
crap at your house and living there for the last month before I take
off for my trip. I have pretty much taken over their house. There was
already a lot of stuff there, and now all my crap is there too. Thanks
guys for being epically awesome.
