Yessi arrived one week ago from China. Today she and Brad depart for California. They will quickly scoot down to California to meet friends of Brad in San Francisco. From there they will be off the bike and into a car to continue south to the Pacific Crest Trail Kickoff. After some PCT celebrating and hiking they will return to San Francisco, pick up the bike and proceed to Big Sur for a couple weeks of hiking. Green Trails will be paying Brad to hike Big Sur to record trail miles and trail conditions for their maps.
