Pacific Crest Trail Map
I missed a few days in my training hikes because of the weather. I am not going to hike on the trail when it is snowing, so why should I do it in training? Friday and Saturday we were getting snow, about 6 inches of it so I did not put the pack on and walk.
I am still fighting the battle in my mind on whether I am really going to do the thru hike. Some days I am really ready to hit the trail, and then there are others that I think of how tired I get going day after day, walking from waking until going to sleep, except when I stop and eat, and I do not know if I can do that again. My body is just getting tired, and maybe I should accept that and go with it. I know a few years ago, I was following Mr. D, as he did the PCT and then at age 70 did the CDT and finished the Triple Crown. I was wondering why he was not pushing out the miles, and now I am really getting to understand why!!!
Well enough of my rambling here. I still am planning on starting around the first of May! Don't give up on me yet!!!
