Trail Names

A little bit about our Trail Names and what they are. Trail names are usually given to you somewhere along the trail. Some people determine their own name, (not quite as much fun) while others are given to you by someone else.

Bobby's Trail name is OMB .. It was given to him by the group that he is section hiking the PCT with. He's the oldest in the group and they thought is appropriate to call him OMB - initials for OLD MAN BOB. I have yet to come up with another name that fits him better, maybe this will be the trip. I am sure somewhere along this 220 mile journey I will find a name more fitting.

Diane's Trail name was given to me by Bibby last year. " Footprint" Relatively speaking for my height of 5'10" my shoe size of 7.5 is small. But somehow I would manage to step on any article of clothing or hat that was left remotely close to the ground, leaving my dusty footprint on it. It fit at the time and has stuck as I continue to do the same even when not on the trail. He bought me the perfect pin at the Whoa Nelly Deli. That says " Leave only Footprints ... It's proudly displayed on by backpack as a constant reminder.
