Pacific Crest Trail Map

Making the decision

I have been fighting in my mind if I really am going to do this again. I was successful in my thru hike in 2006, and when i got back I said never again. But as the days and months passed, the desire to go again started to build. I was going to go in 2011, prepared a lot of food by dehydrating it and making meals, but as i watched the snowpack become greater and greater, really did not want to face another heavy snow hike. Now, as I look at the snowpack this year, it seems to be a very low snow year, and that is what I would really like, so if I am going to begin hiking the first of May, I had better get on the ball and start rolling it.

When I think of doing a thru hike again, I really have mixed emotions. I really love hiking, but then there is the part of me that is lazy, and having done the Pacific Crest Trail in 2006, I know how hard it is. I am asking myself, are you sure that you have the drive to do all those 20 to 30 mile days over and over again for 4 months? I think I can! Maybe this time i will take more than 4 months to do it. Maybe this time I should take it a little slower, but that will be seen. I do know that this time I will take more time to take a lot more pictures. When I think and look at pictures (mine and others) of the trail, there are a lot that others have taken that bring back memories for me that I wish I would have taken a picture of, so one of my goals is MORE PICTURES!!!
