Pacific Crest Trail Map


Well, I am almost ready! I just wanted to post an update about whats happening.
The gear is finalized. I will start with about a 12lb. base weight. That's the weight minus the food, water and fuel I will be carrying. I hope I can find ways to shed a little as I go. I want to make sure I will have the appropriate gear when I start due to the levels of snow and cold in some of the high passes of the southern sections. I have decided to do a little flip flop on my schedule. I will be at Hwy 74 near Palm springs and start my hike going south. I will leave the snow covered San Jacintos in my rear view till I come back up two weeks later to resume my hike north. Hopefully with a little less snow! I plan to hike the 150 miles down to the Mexican border and time it with the PCT Kickoff event, the ADZPCTKO!! I really wanted to go to this event and still have a jump on the herd of people that start their hike from the end of the event. The other reason is to start slow. I have been training a lot but don't want to push it too much on the first week or two. I owe a lot of my preparation to the Email forum (PCT-L) from the PCT Assoc. website. There are a lot of great folks offering up tons of great information. I really am getting a sense of the community I am about to converge with. Great people!
