Gear list

Pacific Crest Trail Map

Pre-Hike planning

Well I have setup this jounal so anyone who wants to can see how I am progressing in the course of my hike on the PCT this year. Hope you all enjoy reading my updates.

I bought new gear for this hike as my old gear has fullfilled its usefull life. Im going ultralight and have a baseweight of 12 lbs. That is all my gear plus backpack without food or water. My average weight with food and water will be about 20 lbs. I will be adding journal entries for each day that I hike about once a week or so. Also I will be adding photos of interesting stuff on my hike.

I plan to start about May 15th. It will take about 5 months to complete and is 2,650 miles in length. I plan to climb Mt. Whitney which is the highest mountain in the continental United States. It is a two mile hike off the PCT.

The trail starts at Campo California on the Mexican border and goes north through California, Oregon, and Washington. It finishes at Manning Park, Canada, which is about 15 miles north of the Canadian border.
