My name is Chris and I’m planning on thru hiking the Pacific Crest Trail(PCT) this year. I’ve got a few requests to keep a blog so people can follow along and know what I’ve been getting myself into. Hopefully I can keep up with this blog and figure out the website so my throngs of fans and supporters will be able to enjoy for hours on end. Keep in mind there are a few reasons I might discontinue updating this: I either quit the hike, I met my fate at the hands of some unforeseen enemy, or most likely it became too much of a chore and I continued the hike and just quit telling you about it.
I’ll give you a quick overview of my plan for the coming months. I’ll be flying from Boston to San Diego 4/25 and beginning my trek north from Campo, CA on the Mexican border the following day. In total it’s a 2660 mile trail . I’m planning on taking 5 months with a brief intermission to come home for brother Jake and future s.i.l. Jodi’s wedding in early August.
Stay tuned, more info to follow. I might even bore you with a post about the weight of my gear or the leftovers I dehydrated and plan on eating in July.
