The first entry in 2022.
Out with the old and in with the new. I replaced my 2021 hiker register with a new one. The prompt for this year is: “What have you learned on your journey so far?” There are a couple innovations for this year: I am trying out using a physically-smaller journal for the register, so that I can swap one out for a new one if it gets soaked and it becomes hard to write new entries without the ink smearing. (I bought four identical journals; hopefully, that will be enough.) More importantly, I am coordinating with another trail angel to place a similar hiker register/journal near Bridge of the Gods, to compare what hikers learn in the 2,000+/- miles of hiking through the remainder of California and Oregon. I’ll supply the link for contributions to that second register once I have it.
