Training

Pacific Crest Trail Map

Pre-trip planning

Twas the month before Campo,
and all through the house
All the hikers were scrambling
'Cause it soon was kickoff.

All the gear had been purchased,
Foods cooked and bagged up,
Apartment left tidy
The office cleaned up.

The supply boxes were stacked
by the doorway with care
In the hope that some angel
Would send them by air.

Then all of a sudden
There arose such a clatter
I rose from my packing
to see what was the matter

'Twas a smelly old hiker!
With broad floppy hat,
Two dinged trekking poles
And a very small pack.

His beard, how it blossomed!
His clothes, how they stank!
With dirt stains, and food stains,
And sweat stains, quite rank!

He gobbled my food
Belched with a joke
Twas clear he knew nothing
About high-minded folk

Then with a wink in his eye
Through sunglasses so dark
He told me to follow;
He'd show me the start.

"Hike your own hike,
And keep up your hopes,
In just five speedy months
again homewards you'll go.

"Sleep under the stars,
Hike carrying your home,
To mountains, to vistas,
So wide to behold!

"Come hikers, come runners,
Wanderers of all strokes!
To Oregon, To Canada,
TO CAMPO WE GO!"
