Pacific Crest Trail Map

Test Hike

So following the latest change in my pack to an REI model, and being treated by my Chiropractor, I did a test hike yesterday with a moderately loaded pack. Hiked 16.75 miles with about 3,000 total elevation gain in rolling terrain, with an average pace of 3 mph which is faster than my normal trail pace. Success!!! Pain was minimal and manageable. Added to my pack Icy-Hot cream and an Icy-Hot TENS unit. This lightweight electronic unit uses mild shocks to relieve pain. Battery powered. Only weighs a few ounces. Easy to replace pads and battery. Shaq O'Neil advertises it. It works great!
I re-engage on the PCT soon. I'm ready!!!
