Cold desert

It feels so familiar. Gather the food; by now I am pretty good at judging how much I will eat on trail. Stuff the puffy jacket, wonder if it will be enough. Fill up six liters of water, really?
Flash and I laughed as we looked at our pack explosion. This is so familiar, and yet so challenging. 
We start Section A of the PCT tomorrow. We are in San Diego right now, staying at an amazing trail angel house. They are driving us to the trail, feeding us today, and even gave us keys to their car. How do they do it? People like this restore the faith.
Typically the desert bakes. We packed planning for this. However, as we flew here, the forecast changed to a cold front, possibly rain. Lows in the twenties? I started to fear pack, throwing some Walmart leggings in. We will be all right. Fifty and sixty degrees will really help us with the water consumption. We have some long carries.
Will we be cold? Will we be thirsty? Will we love it? Probably all of the above.
Back in a week.
