Pacific Crest Trail Map

A Dream Unfolds

It has begun.

I have dreamed of hiking the PCT for at least the last ten years, and after much prayer, planning, thought, and soulful contemplation with my (amazing) wife, this coming year it is becoming reality. Having been granted sabbatical from my college, I'll be hiking from my front door onto the trail, heading north, then flipping down to the Mexican border and hiking back home. This puts me in mind of The Lord of the Rings, and that pleases me greatly.

Right now, I'm continuing my training regimen and starting to plan. Given that I've been obsessing about plans for the past several months, this is nothing new, but now it has a certainty that continues to come upon me in odd moments as kind of a shock.

I'm looking forward to a journey that is physically taxing, mentally challenging, spiritually enlightening, and ultimately like nothing I planned for. I'm frightened and thrilled and humbled and determined.

Here we go.
