Pacific Crest Trail Map

its go time

I just packed my life into 10 boxes and a 68 L pack...I burned all my unimportant financial documents...i canceled my utilities...I'm ready...I've been ready physically speaking for a while...now i'm ready mentally...maps are secured, drops are ready, finances in order, my feet feel stronger than ever....busted out a 32 mile hike through the snow from paradise to san jacinto peak to the tram....I have tested all my gear...my clothing is comfortable in 50 mph winds that brought the wind chill down to 15 degrees, and that is without putting on my down jacket...my family is a pain in the ass but I'm over it...it is go time...bring it pct because i am ready to embrace the slow life...bring the pain, I'm ready...I want to be broken down and built up into a new man...i want to live the joy i feel every time i am in the wilderness for 5 months, mixed in with those moments where you are vulnerable and in pain and can't go on, only to pull up your boot straps and press on...i'll see you all at KO, then its easy walking to idyllwild to celebrate with my friends...then...then its time to put up some dust....lets do this '13...i hope yall are ready to hike

Chris' Journal

A man's interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.
