Pacific Crest Trail Map

Have you ever seen the movie Groundhog Day, where each day when he awakes, he repeats the same day over and over again? I have been living this on an every other day basis for about two months now. My home is an hour from a moderate trail in Sequoia NP. Every other day I drive to the trail head and hike, following Ray Jardine’s plan of slowly working my way up to a 20 mile hike with a 30 pound load on a trail with a 4000 foot gain and a 1000 foot loss. Then I rest for a day and do it again. Ray, the master, claims that anyone who does this for a total of 500 miles should be able to start 20 mile days and finish in 4 and a half months. Hmm, but I’ll still want to rest every other day, would that take me 9 months? Does it snow in the Cascades?? Seriously, Ray says some rest days are crucial, I hope once a week will work for me.
