Big Bear!

So we have made it over 250 miles!! Pretty amazing when I think about it.....kind of crazy we have walked that far. It has been great thus far. I am loving it. Though we are about to go into the really hot desert section so...But here are some photos from this last bit

Our very dirty clothes. We had to fill the tub like 4 times to get the water to not get to that dark brown color. Amazing how dirty things get in the desert

Photobucket
And I did not realize we had to watch out for....

Killer Trees!!!

We woke up one morning in the clouds. So we packed up and started walking and we got to this boulder field that was amazing! The clouds were rolling in and then they would start to retreat and then come in again....we sat and ate breakfast there. It was one of my favorite parts of the trip thus far as it was gorgeous!

Photobucket
It was amazing. The ground was just like one big rock with boulders on it. Absolutely gorgeous!

Photobucket
I also didn't realize I had to watch out for cheerleaders.....

Photobucket
And squirrels.....there are so many dangers out there I never thought about before we left :)

Photobucket
Outside of Idyllwild we ran into our first snow...but Raymond took care of that :)

Photobucket
It is a hard hard life we have out on the trail....

Photobucket
Raymond's backpack is a magnet for small birds...when we stop to take a break they flock

More snow in the San Jacinto Wilderness

The first night out of Idyllwild we camped on Fuller Ridge above the clouds. It was gorgeous!

Above the clouds. It was awesome

We are sooo dirty. And walking through Mesa wind farm

Photobucket
Whitewater canyon was gorgeous as well. Lots of water flowing with tadpoles in it.

Photobucket
Cooling off in Mission Creek (our hottest day we have had thus far. The water was sooo cold and felt sooo good)

Photobucket
There are a lot of burned areas with cool burned trees

Photobucket
Mission Creek Canyon was super hot....but had a ton of beautiful flowers. The walls of the canyon were covered with purple flowers. It was awesome

We got to Big Bear this morning and had a HUGE breakfast. It was so good.

We are in Big Bear now and it seems like we should be able to upload our audio tonight so it should be up shortly! And we are heading out tomorrow afternoon. Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

We are off!!

So Phillip and Dana were gracious enough to take us to the border on Friday afternoon and we started hiking! It has been amazing and fun and we have been meeting a lot of very nice people all over the place. On the second day we had this awful hike up a canyon that was just soooo hot and bleh and when we got to the top we met some people out day hiking who gave us ice water! It was amazing!! Anyways we cannot upload the audio or photos at the library here in Julian, so hopefully in Warner Springs we can get them up. The first days were really hot, but yesterday was freezing! We were very glad we had all of our gear with us as in the morning it was soooo cold and windy we had our hats and gloves and jackets and long underwear on. It was crazy how windy it was....literally blowing me over on the trail. I was glad I had my hiking poles as without them I am sure I would have fallen numerous times just due to the wind. We have been hiking pretty far the last 2 days, 15-16 miles each da

Railay Beach, Thailand - Day 1

  Getting to Railay Beach from Bangkok kind of takes forever. We had taken the overnight train from Bangkok to Surat Thai where we had to switch to a bus to take us to Krabi. I slept much better on the train that night. I had put in my earplugs and only woke up a few times. It was great. I woke up around 6 and was ready to go. Raymond was just like you are so wakey! I was just like yeah - I actually slept! So I was all refreshed and ready to go.    We had picked up some banana muffins in Bangkok for breakfast, as well as leftovers from our feast the night before, and the muffins were delicious! We should have gotten more of them than we did. So we got to Surat Thani and had to switch to a bus like I said. It was a bit confusing where we should go and what was going on, but we got on the bus and it took us into Surat Thani Town. That bus was really nice so I thought the trip to Krabi would be great. Only we had to wait a bit and switch buses and the new bus, the one that took us

Roller Derby World Cup, Manchester 2018

Last year was the roller derby world cup in Manchester! I love roller derby world cup! I love watching all the teams from all over the world and seeing how they have improved and oh it is so much fun!! Last year there were 38 teams! It was awesome. We got into Manchester at lunchtime and had a crazy big lunch at Mod's Vegan Cafe at the Thirsty Scholar which was delicious! Vegan English breakfast, a burger with fries and onion rings It was rainy so we didn't wander around much, but I made Raymond go out in the afternoon to check out The John Rylands Library which was super cool. And so many super old books! It is really the only sightseeing we did while in Manchester as we had so much derby to watch! Dinner at V Rev - soup, mac and cheese, and fired seitan plate - delicious! Waiting to get into roller derby - the line was sooooooo long! I should have printed off our tickets, but I forgot. It took over an hour to
