Last training run

Almost ready to go...

A few months ago, my wife and I decided we were going to begin section hiking the PCT this year. Our goal is to through hike it some day, but our lives don't currently allow us to be gone for that long!

So...we began adding mileage to our weekend day hikes and doing overnight trips more often. I worked on the ever changing gear list to get exactly what we need and nothing we don't. You would call us ultra-light hikers I guess...my base weight is about 8lbs and Jene's is about 5lbs. Our goal is to always be comfortable and safe, so minimalists we are not.

We start this coming Saturday, and the anticipation has been building for a long time now. We just completed our last "training" hike yesterday, with full starting pack weights, and clicked off 18 miles in about 7 1/2 hours. You can tell you're ready when this no longer makes your muscles sore.

I just mailed resupply boxes today so we only have to carry 2 days of food at a time. A few more gear tweaks, and we will be on our way!
