We are back on the road by 10am and heading to a spot where the PCT crosses the 2 highway about 3 miles from where we left the trail a couple days ago. When we reached the trail we all thought that we were going to do a 20 mile day. Nope.. We did 6,... Continue Reading →
Zero day. Took the group disc golfing at Oak Grove in Pasadena. Then relaxed, handled supply, relaxed some more, ate a really bitchen home cooked meal. Not a lot else to talk about. My legs were feeling better, at least I thought they were.
It was nice not having to get up too early this morning. Forsure I wasn't the only one to fell this way as most of the camp was still setup by 9am and everyone still in their tents. Peeled my quilt off of my scab, crawled out of my tent and grabbed my food bag... Continue Reading →
An early morning starts this day. As the sun rises, we all pack up our gear, met at a table and have a very quick breakfast. Soon we will start the climb up Baden Powell. Baden Powell sits at 9,406 feet. Its the second high peak going North on the PCT, the first being San... Continue Reading →

As I sit in the passenger seat of the van, heading... Continue Reading →
Zeros.. Spent some time with my great friend, took a hike in my old training grounds and ate good food. Not a lot to talk about. Spent a lot of time just relaxing and enjoying the time off.
We all wake at the Silverwood campground, slowly come to life and pack up. Got a fire going and we all reheated our left over pizza up on the camp grill. I arranged to have one of my friends come and pick us up from the site. There was a lot of off trail stuff... Continue Reading →
I woke at Deep Creek Hotsprings. Packed my bag kinda quick and then headed down to the river from where I was cowboy camping. Got to the sandy shoreline, dropped my stuff off and took a walk over to the nearest hot spring, not too far away. The water in this pool was being fed... Continue Reading →
I'm use to waking up before everyone, but this time was a little different. This time Second Chance Hiker was awake and packed before I even got up. As I packed and ate my breakfast he and I talked about the upcoming miles and that we will be hitting the 300 mile mark today. We... Continue Reading →
