Itinerary

This is a tentative itinerary.
It will fluctuate with my pace, and especially when I make detours/stops in town/visit friends. Please do not use this itinerary to surprise me along the trail and try to see me. I won’t always be where it says I will be. The best way to meet me along the trail is to get in touch with me via blog comments, email, mail, or (if I have service) text messages and plan it with me in advance.

If you are looking for exact mailing addresses in order to send me something, please look at To Send Care Packages and Letters.
