Why I am going to hike the PCT

Fall of 2007 and winter of 2008 found me getting serious about my old dream of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. I would need some new gear but most importantly I would need to lose a lot of weight as the Doctor had told me to. In Feb 2008 I weighed in at Dr Roebucks at 269 lbs and now Feb 19, 2009 I weighed in at Dr Roebucks at 212 lbs.

The fever always attacks at the Gatherings and Gettysburg, 2007 was no exception. There were great PCT slide shows and video with interesting narration by fascinating hikers. I talked with the veteran hikers and the novice dreamers. The deal was sealed at the 2008 Gathering at Pipestem, WV. I talked a lot with PCT hiking legend "Billy Goat" and others who had just finished their PCT hikes. I found out that Billy Goat is 8 months older than me and plans to hike again this year.
