Pacific Crest Trail Map

Rough sketch of resupply plan

Have posted my resupply plan. Couple of my sections seem long so require additional research. My primary goal was to resupply, whether purchasing or mail drop, as close to the trail as possible. The sections that seem long might require a longer hitch if I want to shorten them up. Using Yogi's book I will see what my options are. I have thrown in some zero days just for planning purposes. Holly is going to meet me in Portland for sure and potentially in South Shore as well so I needed to come up with tentative dates so she could request the vacation time. I feel pretty good about the resupply locations but am well aware that the hike days between them will be subject to change dependent upon many factors.

I am not going into this trip in quite the shape I have been in for other long hikes. I hope that knowing what it takes to hike longer distances will carry me through the first few weeks until I get my trail legs. My feet seem to be in pretty good shape from playing pickle ball so I hope they aren't much of an issue. A bit over a month until the trip begins so I can still work on the conditioning.

I will be driving to Vegas on April 13th, getting married on the 15th, and Holly and I will drive to the Campo area on the 18th. Early morning on the 19th I will hit the trail. Can't say enough about Holly's tolerance for my passion for hiking.
