Pacific Crest Trail Map

Yet another year for me...

Typing zero in my "daily distance" is disheartening as it now looks like it will be zero for this year. Two days before leaving, I was offered a position that I just can't refuse. My family and friends are telling me not to be upset as the trail will be there in years to come but it breaks my heart not to go. I'm reading others journals and living vicariously but it is nowhere near to being the same. The position is only temporary until the end of the year so there are options for going next year. I'm going to try and focus on the positive and think of all the things I can try and accomplish this summer in lieu of the PCT. There are some California 14ers calling me as will as highpoints in Washington, Nevada, Utah and Idaho. (I am secretly hoping that it all falls through and that I end up being able to go Sobo instead in July but I think that is just wishful thinking) And of course trail angeling. I think I'll pack my cooler with goodies and take Kenny's 4 x 4 up to the more remote trail crossing and try to bring a little joy in the form of soda and beer to those that are living my dream right now. Walk on.
