I posted about my youngest son, Nates plan to hike the Pacific Crest Trail awhile back (more like whined about it!). I thought I would give an update. He started the Tuesday after Easter. He is going south to north on the trail. So far he has made it just north of Big Bear Lake and I believe is now in the Mojave Desert. He still has a LONG way to go since he isn't even half way through California yet and he still has Oregon and Washington to get through. He called me on Mothers Day when he had service for his phone, which was a wonderful surprise! Other than his GPS texts, which are automated, I didn't expect to hear from him until he was on his way home.
