The welcome sign at my families house

Kick off concert at the Gorge

Just as everything else that I needed to fall into place in order to return
to the PCT had, my ride to WA also fell into place perfectly. My best friend
Jaspreet was driving to a Dave Matthews concert in WA the same weekend that
I wanted to return to the trail so we joined her and another friend Sadie on
the road trip as well as to the concert. "We" consisted of myself and my
long time friend Marcus who decided to make this 500+ mile journey his first
backpacking trip ever and joined me.

Along the way we stayed at my families house outside of Portland where we
picked up my cousin Ryan. En route to the Gorge where the concert was going
on we stopped at a trail angels house to pick up Stix who was also joining
us at the concert and then would be hiking the PCT with us (Stix is who I
hiked with in Norcal & Oregon last year). There were two other 2011/2012
hikers there as well, so Bounce Box and Major Upchuck came along for the
concert also.

After an amazing show at a breathtaking amphitheater under the almost full
moon followed by a festival style night of camping we loaded back into the
truck and returned to the Bridge of the Gods where our journey to Canada
would begin again.
