2 Months Until Liftoff!

January 23, 2020

Two months, or 8 weeks, until I start from the border. And February is a short month, so really, 59 days.

I watched the 2019 PCT Water webinar last night (for the second time) and also the 2019 Sierra webinar. These are both invaluable resources for hikers on how to use the water report (www.pctwater.com) and also just general thru hiking strategy and safety tips.

I don’t think people realize what a logistical challenge this endeavor is, at least if you want to be smart and safe about it. That is one of the more attractive things about the PCT to me. It reminds me of my tour managing days. Plan, but be flexible. It’s a weird skill that I actually do very well when I want to.

Ok, that’s all I got. Just wanted to document the negative 2 month mark!

  • Ian –

    I’m following you and think it’s so exciting! Thanks for sharing your adventure.

    Only thing I have to offer is a heavy duty sewing machine and heavy nylon thread, if you need any straps, etc. shortened or fixed. I can sew through multiple layers of anything with it.

    Be safe. Have fun!

    • Hey Laurel, actually I may need your services. A small piece of my hip belt broke during a hike the other day and needs to be sewed back on. It’s still functional, but would rather have it correctly flxed. Also my doofus dog tore through the mesh on my hip belt pockets. Not sure if you could patch those or not.
