Wondering minds want to know?

This first journal entry comes a bit sooner than I planned. I've had a bit of a cold this holiday weekend. So, bored of sitting around nursing myself, I figured I could take the time to start up the journal for our hike next year. Finally, the time to do the PCT! An intro of ourselves: I'm Elderly Ellen and will be doing most of the writing (as Larry is more inclined to the photography). I'll be 56 when we hit the trail (date yet to be determined), and just retired from a job as a nurse anesthetist. Larry will be 70, and has been retired from his job at Grand Canyon for 5 years. We're both avid (rabid?) out-doors types. We love to hike (this year, we've done about 350 miles of the AZT, the JMT, and a bunch of other stuff). Never the less, this PCT hike will challenge us in many ways: longer days, more days on trail, more weather, more logistics. I've been sketching out the details over the past 1-1/2 years. Not much more planning I can do until 2010... I'll outline our gear in a future entry. Or you can look at our JMT journal from 2009, where we used most of the stuff we'll take next year. Time seems to be creeping along. I know the pace will become hectic around February next year, and I long for that activity!
