This isn't the hiking trip I signed up for. I think I've landed in Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery. There seems to be no place to plug in my laptop and they've given me a bag to carry that's twice my bodyweight. My big goal is to be the first to see the Pacific and maybe have a bug or a slug named after me. The greatest thing about this trip seems to be finding animals known only to Indians, and I sure hope we don't have to walk back again.
