This was desperately over due. My sideburns now seem to grow like crazy, becoming large bushes as the rest of my head hair continues to recede. I look ridiculous rapidly unless regularly cropped. My delightful hairdresser does perms too.
We’re back in Wakkanai after our trip to the islands and will shelter here for the next day and night before cycling south to avoid very wet weather. We’re starting to prepare ourselves for the next bit of our journey via KL, London and LA where we head to Portland to hike south down the PCT. This hike I’ve been wanting to do since about 1997 but have never had the courage to make the time until now.
A new chapter in our journey approaches as we rest our worn out bikes and change into our long distant hiking gear.
