Ready for the Unveiling, Portland

The Black Badge

Hey, thought I'd give anyone who's interested a look at my PCT tattoo. Like its AT predecessor, it serves to remind me, when I'm having a rough time on or off the Trail, of what a skinny, cowardly, bookish fellow like me - who hated every minute of boy scouts and has never watched a full game of any sport in his life - is capable of when he applies himself. It will hopefully also taunt me into making up those missing 500 or so miles!

I'm enjoying the leisure of sitting at my computer each morning, sipping a cup of tea and reading through the journal entries of my friends closing in on the Canadian border. The rain, the cold, the wet gear - no regrets so far! Also having a blast going through my pictures and video, discarding the obvious failures, mentally matching each picture to place and time. The only journal I kept this time was this Postholer one, so there are a LOT of gaps! I will be spending my spare time in Europe editing a slick little slideshow/movie with captions, narration, music etc. I want it to tell a story - not always a happy one, but a true one. When it's ready I'll be happy to send a copy to anyone who's interested.

Coming soon: some selected shots from the journey. Also some thoughts on gear and the standard "what I'd do differently" blurb.
