PCT Day 29

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 →

PCT Day 28

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 →

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 →

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...

PCT Days 18 and 19

We all headed back to my hometown to enjoy a couple days off trail to recover. Its was nice to have a roof, hot food and laundry. The fun quickly ended and we went back to the trail.
