So far Andy’s had cell coverage at every campsite and checked in when he got to his destination. Here’s last night’s and tonight’s updates:
4/8/12 8:51pm “Safe and sound! 15 miles today. At Boulder Oaks campgroup tonight. 2 rattlers, 1 horny toad, 1 fellow thru-hiker, and 1 haagen dazs ice cream bar 🙂 xo”
4/9/12 7:37pm “Made it to Mt. Laguna tonight. Can you pick me up at Noble Canyon trailhead (you can look it up — a few miles north of Mt. Laguna) tomorrow around noon.?” (17 miles) Next text: “Doing great! I already have our lunch place for tomorrow picked out :-)”
I’m looking forward to seeing my boy and hear how his first leg of a long journey started out!
