A frustrating day,

20 days to go

Today has been a frustrating day,

I am planning to take my Samsung S7  phone with me , But  trying to  get  the correct information regarding  US sims  cards  is  driving me  nuts .
Before I brought this phone, I had long conversations with Samsung UK about being able to use it on a CDMA network. (It is what Verizon use in the US)
They  assured me  that if it was unlocked and had  been used in the UK  for at  least  48  hours  then it should  work, I also  checked with Samsung USA  and  they said  the same
However, Verizon the network that I was hoping to use say NO!

However, I cannot find anyone to confirm this,

It’s  all about coverage as I used AT&T when I hiked the PCT and they were worse than useless. So maybe I will sprint or T-Mobile …. Although I could buy a cheap compatible phone and hot spot it to my current phone ..

Oh well there’s no point worrying now until I  fly  in …

What else have I been doing , mainly avoiding gear shops.
But  I have packed and  unpacked my pack,  and I am happy with what I am carrying.
I have several extra bits of clothing, which I may shed, when I have a week or two under my belt.
I am planning to take a bounce box , but I am now having reservations
On the Pacific Crest Trail it was a necessity , but that isn’t the case on the AT,
