hiking and my great-aunt

She didn't understand how one might backpack 31 miles in a more or less straight line.
It was pretty straightforward, we need a ride from one end of the trail, where you live, to the other end, so when we emerge from the trail, the car we got to Seaside in is there, waiting for us, rather than having to double back to retrieve the car- our vehicle to return to civilization. This confusion required two first attempts at explanation, a call to my mother, and then calling me again just a bit ago to get the story through. I hope this isn't what 75 years does to me, that is, assuming I make it that far. It is a long hike.

Which trail(s) is/are that? Coastal hikes are always amazingly beautiful.

i don't remember the name, but it goes from manzanita to seaside in 31 miles. i've never been on a backpacking trip like this before. hell, i've never gone camping for multiple nights in the wilderness before unless i'm forgetting something or went with my parents when i was too young to remember.

honestly i'm a bit nervous, but not in any practical sense. i just seem to keep over-thinking it all, which is what i do when i'm nervous, which can be a lot of the time.

unfortunately though, we are not hiking that trail. the weather is WAY too bad out there right now. We're instead going somewhere south of Eugene. Should still be a lot of fun.

Bummer, good luck and have fun. =) The worst that happens is you break something and a boulder falls on you and you have to cut off limbs with a swiss army knife while fending off packs of wolves...
