Pacific Crest Trail Map

Time to get motivated again

I just received my 2010 thru-hiker permit so I seem to be commited to another stint on the trail. Last year I hiked from the Mexico Border to Hiker Town and then from Trail Pass to Sonora Pass for a total of about 800 miles. This year I feel this need to fill in the blank area from Hiker Town to Trail Pass (250 miles +/-) plus I would really like to see the Oregon section.

My initial thought is to start at Agua Dulce so I can toughen up a little before the big waterless sections north of Hiker Town. That said, I am not looking forward to the section that detours around the Tejon Ranch. I really got toasted there last summer. The starting date will be somewhere around May 1 depending on a lot of things but mostly weather and snow levels in the Sierra south of Trail Pass.

Then I plan to return home until the end of July; then travel to Ashland; and try to pick up the "herd" as they come through northern CA and southern OR. I noticed that I got pretty lonely last year when I waited until July to go through the Sierras so this plan should help with that.
