Pacific Crest Trail Map

Dewy DEwy Dewy Dew Whaaaahh!!

Greetings all you hikin' filth out there in computer land! I haven't written on here in a while! Not since before I left to hike the entire PCT! I can't believe i made it! Was the coolest hike i've done so far! I started off the hike as just Brian. After a few hundred miles I gave myself the name B-Wildered, Which later became Trash-bags! LOL! Long story (sorta) Then I became Glide, and by the time i was deep into the Sierra's, a fellow hiker Cookie came up with the trail name Dewy due to my moisture attracting magic!

Any ways I ended Up starting on May 5th (Cinco De Mayo), and I finished on Sept. 20 th I think it was! I Did not skip any sections except for the required section around the hot springs, due to land slide, and the Arroyo toad habbitat thing! However the mileages work out to almost exactly the same! I'd also like to point out I did not flip-flop nor slack-pack not even once! I went straight through the Sierra's, and battled my way through Washington's rugged, and challenging splendor! I only saw one bear ( unlike most people who saw many) one bob cat, lots of elk, coyote, Pine Martins, Rattlers, and a butt load of lizards and snakes. I even saw a California Condor the 1st day of my hike!

So I will slowly but shirley be working on my journal ( don't call me shirley) as it was a hand written journal on the trail! No!! I didn't bring a droid or an i Phone or any thing! If I could go back in time, the one electronic device I would bring is a GPS no doubt! It would have saved me hours, and lots of extra miles hiking!

Peace you all, and good luck to returning to Society!! And if your planning a hike, please feel free to ask any questions you might have! ~~Dewy Dewy Dewy dew whaaaaa!
