  1. So you haven’t said how cold does it get at night? I see you both with hats and jackets. Love the pictures and updates. Caitlin you are a trooper

  2. So far it’s been anywhere from the upper 40’s to below freezing at night. It varies a lot depending on our elevation and the wind. It only gets really cold when the sun goes down.

  3. An excerpt from a poem for you!
    “There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
    There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
    There is society where none intrudes,
    I love not Man the less, but Nature more,
    From these our interviews, in which I steal
    From all I may be, or have been before,
    To mingle with the Universe ……just a short “good night”!xoxomom

  4. I am so glad you emailed us! I haven’t been getting the updates so I just binge-read the last week! I miss you guys and I am so elated for you both. It looks beautiful! Just like Poppa said, every day is a gift! Yes they are! Can’t wait for June to get here so I can come find you! Happy belated anniversary! xoxo

  5. Wow, what an adventure. The updates and pictures are inspiring. Makes us wish we could hike it too. Then I start thinking about that green bandana pinned to Caitlin’s pack and will compromise on a day hike in the Cascades. Enjoy your youth because we are enjoying with you!

  6. Looks like you guys are doing great! So proud of you! Caitlin I love those pink shades you have been rocking, very nice! Derek, love the updates, very descriptive, can’t wait for more! Happy belated Anniversary by the way. Love of love, Fleavie 🙂

  7. The bandana situation is working well so far… Either our noses are so full of dirt or we are desensitized to smell. Maybe both.

  8. Your pack came today….ooh so light! To Derek’s mom…your poem made tear up. Thanks. See you Thursday morning at Warner Springs at the Eagle. How are the stars? love yu

  9. Wow, I can’t believe it gets that cold at night. Bundle up!! Sounds like Nana will be meeting you… great is that!

    Love Mom
