Pacific Crest Trail Map

Overview

This journal is for my family and friends [both new and old] to join me in my journey. Once on the trail, I will be posting the backlog of entries as soon as I get reception in town. I am quite certain that this will be an intense journey; and although many will think that I am insane [I do believe they are right] for attempting it, there are some things in our life that we just have to do.

I am leaving before the ADZPCTKO [Annual Day Zero Pacific Crest Trail Kick-Off] and will catch it on my way north. I plan on staying a day or two there to meet new people and experience the festive atmosphere. I will be making this trek solo, although I am sure that I will be among the deluge of hikers leaving approximately the same time. I have had several friends showing interest in joining me for short legs of the trip, and I look forward to seeing them on the trail, however no one has committed yet so the plan is still solo.

If you are reading the entries to my journal, please leave a note in the guestbook. I would love hearing from you and will respond as soon as I get a chance.
