Please fasten your hip belts, stow your tables (and chairs, and beds, and the rest of your furniture), and ensure your backpacks are in their upright, locked position. It's time for an adventure ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿœ๏ธ๐Ÿž๏ธ๐Ÿฟ๏ธ

Andy and I are hiking the Pacific Crest Trail starting tomorrow, which will take 6 months from the Mexican border into Canada. Every day or two we will be updating our location with a gps tracker, so you'll be able to follow our progress on this map!

And here is a picture of all of my worldly possessions for the next 6 months. Minus food and water, it weighs all of 12.5 pounds! Aside from the bare essentials, my two main luxuries are 8 packets of instant coffee and 7 pages of a physics textbook.

Happy trails,
Natalie
