Pacific Crest Trail Map

To hike or not to hike

After an emotional rollercoaster last year on trail I made the decision to go up to Alaska to satisfy my curiosity. After an amazing few weeks in Alaska, with no luck salmon fishing, I ended up flying to Philly to spend three weeks with friends. After that I flew to Michigan to spend two weeks with my family then made it home to Florida to ride out a few more months before going back to work. Since then I have gotten married and moved across the continent; still unable to shake the trail from my mind. Now with my wife going back to work and the prospect of moving in a few short months again to southern California the trail calls to me. It's curious how something as simple as walking in the woods can completely engulf your life. Though I still havn't commited to hiking, it feels right. Im glad to see alot of my friends from last year planning to rehike and hopefully I will be joining too.

If there is one thing I learned form my 350 mile section hike last year it is that you can trust yourself. You wont always be right, but who would want to be. Sometimes wrong turns are more valuable learning experiences. It seems to me freestyling last year may have been the process I needed.
