So here's the plan for the next couple days, in case anyone is interested. I'm at my sister's place in Marin right now, and I'll be heading up to Mt. Shasta with her and Sam (her man-friend) tomorrow. We'll get to the base of the mountian, make some sort of camp, then take off the next morning and do the peak. Bag the peak, you could say.
After that, I'll take some sort of transport further north until I get to seattle. I'm thinking of hitchhiking or trying a craigslist rideshare thing, but we'll see what works out. The greyhound is the other option.
