PCT Day 27

Packed up second and set off about 20 minutes after one of my tramly members. It was about 7 am and the morning was awesome. Pine trees, snow and a beautiful view were my office today. I'm trucking along at a decent pace and there were a few snow banks that took some time to... Continue Reading →

PCT Day 26

Woke up at about 6am in the hotel room, shaved my head, took my last shower for a while and grabbed breakfast from the lobby. Everyone packed up their new food resupply, took care of backpacking chores and we all met at the rental truck around 1030. We did rent a truck for the couple... Continue Reading →

PCT Day 23

The morning starts with an instantaneous climb again. Packed up before everyone and set off. In a mile I gain just about 1000ft. This mountain is kicking my ass. Every day has been a struggle up this thing. It's really making know just how outa shape I am. Pouring sweat, and with no real flat... Continue Reading →

PCT Day 21

As the norm, I woke up early, packed my bag and headed out ahead of my tramly. After about a mile I'm greeted by the first actual river crossing so far. I crossed it and then took advantage of the situation and refilled my water while I waited for my crew to catch up Followed... Continue Reading →

PCT Day 20

We decided to skip about a 20 mile section of the trail that would have led us over Mt San Jacinto. At the time there were a lot of hikers turning around, some being rescued, others being put into very unsafe conditions. The snow was still a serious issue. None of us wanted to deal...

We are all learning hard lessons on not eating properly while on trail. Hard to explain, but most of us aren't hungry after walking all day and that... Continue Reading →

PCT Day 14

I woke up early and packed up. Its was a sad morning as one of our tramly members had to leave to head back to his job for a few weeks. It was kinda hard to say goodbye, as we have walked 100 miles together, camped and done a lot as a group. He will... Continue Reading →

PCT Day 11

After a full night's sleep I woke up feeling a lot better. At first I thought the sun had risen but it was just the moon... damn. I sat in my tent for about another hour before the sun rose just enough to provide background light. I packed up my bag and was on trail... Continue Reading →

PCT Day 8

Woke up many times thru the night due to my not great tent placement. Damn pad kept sliding down hill making me wake up squished into the corner of the tent every hour or so. Decided at about 5am to just get up and get ready. Packed my bag, watched the sun rise and got... Continue Reading →
