New Tlands PCT content!

I've been avoiding posting about my hiking since I got back ... the bottom line is that trying to summarize everything that's happened would just remind me again of the fact I'm off the trail and sitting at home. Adding to that frustration is the uncertainty of the nebulous knee injury -- it'll be later today before I get a full diagnosis on it (the preliminary suspicion was patellar tendonitis) or any idea how long this is going to lay me over.

Put together, those have made it tough for me to face my hike dead-on. And there are always so many distractions sitting back here in a comfortable house with a good Internet connection ...

The good news, at least, is that I've tried to channel some of that spare time into productivity. And I'm happy to report the result:, which for my entire trip thus far has just been a redirect page bouncing folks to my journal, is now an actual hub for all my hiking data. Convenient links to my journal, photos, and individual posts and groups of posts of note are all there. If you've been bookmarking my journal for updates on my trip, now makes a more optimal starting point -- you're one click away from the newest journal entries, but new content will appear there, too, and everything will be more organized and prettier.

On top of that, I've added a new, never-before-seen feature! Redtail's Rules of Thru-hiking collects the nuggets of wisdom I've picked up over the course of the trip. I've even added annotations giving the backstory behind 'em all.

I hope that can tide everyone over until I can face up to my chronicling responsibilities. Fortunately, that should get a little easier today, once I see the physical therapist and get the (hopefully good) word on the knee woes.
