Pacific Crest Trail Map

It's Real! I told my mom

Well now I have to do this. This morning I told my mother I'm doing it and she said she thought it was awesome! Guess i have to go!

I went through this weekend and looked at people's plans and gear lists and started working on mine. I honestly am super excited to go spend a few hours in REI just poking around - even if I don't buy anything. I used Craig's PCT Planner to help me figure out goog places to stop and where I should resupply. Also, Plan Your Hike's resupply point list is the most helpful thing ever. It gives you all the addresses and informaiton about the resupply point in a painfully detailed matter. Adding up the numbers seems awfully daunting but I know if I just keep practicing and training it'll be "fine." Fine in quotes since regardless of what I do beforehand the first 300miles I fully expect to be miserable/achy/mentally and physcially challenging.

I did make the mistake today of looking at photos of PCT hikers' feet. I hope that doesn't happen to my feet! Have to make sure my boots are the right fit.

Things I want to work on for now:

- Working on an training regimen

- Research food for the hike

- Go to REI to look at different items

- Go thorugh and update my plan for zero days and add information about resupply stops

- Place to stay from January - April
