Pacific Crest Trail Map

First one!

Hi all, this is the start of my journey, I am hoping. Body has to be willing to accomplish what the mind is planning. I am ready to notch another box on the ole bucket list, and this is a big one for me. Hope you all enjoy my travels, via these postings, as I will enjoy them, in fact.

Working my equipment list, and camping outside of the house to make sure the ole sleep system is ready for a potential cold snap. I plan to use a Bozeman MT Works UL 60 (rated at 40-50 degrees) and a set of down midlayers. Tested to 30 F and did fine, will try down to 20 and see how that works for me. Using a Nemo Meta 1P tent, Neo torso pad, and my one major luxury for the hike a Crazy Creek Chair (light one at less than a pound) that doubles as insulation from the ground for my legs.

Plan to start with an Osprey Exos 58 Pack. So there you have the shelter, pack and sleep systems. Poncho and chaps for wet stuff. Microspikes and Corsa Ice Axe. Still working on the rest of the kit, with a goal of a base wt of 15 pounds with everything but the bear cannister.

See Ya for now,
