This is she:



  1. Beautiful sister. I get very inspired. I like your writing too. But how are you going to write on your computer in the middle of nowhere? Luck and love to you, Cream xx

    1. Hi Cream! Thanks, your writing on http://www.raw-devotion.com inspire me too! Good question. I’m taking my iPhone with a small solar panel for charging. There are these foldable keyboards, very lightweight, I want to bring one too. So I can blog every night before bedtime under the stars. Whenever I’m in town, I make time to write even more. Love, Vi X

  2. Hey, I made it to your blog and have enjoyed reading and looking at the pictures.
    Stay strong girl and keep writing…we are enjoying the reading and going through this journey with you through your words!

  3. Starting reading your blog and would like to know where you finished. Beautiful pictures by the way. Love your determination, and reflective words after long days on the trail.

  4. I was looking around at PCT journals and somehow found yours. Very inspiring writing! Pretty sure I met you at the Mexican border on 11/11 when you finished the thru-hike. Maybe you remember a lone geocacher wandering around the area? Anyway, I took a photo of your group if you’d like it. Y’all seemed incredibly happy, and understandably so! Cheers :)

    1. Hi Brent! Yes of course I remember you. And yes, I finished with my trail buddies Mrs Dash, Just Jake and Red Fox on the 11/11! Yes we were happy, but I remembered also feeling sad because this epic voyage was over. Great that you found my blog! Always love to have pictures, can you post it here? – Viola
