So I've been back on the trail now for less than a week due to my former foot injury, and I've realized that episode 4 is looking a little sparse. Resourcewise, that sparcity includes my available Internet connections/ electrical outlets. I'm currently typing this post at a Burger King in a small town called Lake Isabella trying to finish ASAP so my phone will have a charge for the next few days.
As a result, I don't think I'm going to be able to release episode 4 by tomorrow's deadline.
This might very well be a blessing in disguise. Not much of note has happened in the last 5 days, but lots will happen within the next week. If I push back episode 4's release to next Monday, I'll be able to talk about the beginning of the next big leg of this journey, my ascent into the Sierras. And that will turn a currently boring episode into something a lot more. So, officially, I'm pushing back the next episode's release date a week. Sorry for any inconvenience this might cause.
Thanks for understanding,
