Pacific Crest Trail Map

The Plan

I would like to thank my wife, Elisabeth, who has been a huge help in getting me to this point. Hoping that she will join me later in the Sierras. Thanks also to Tartan, PCT 2014,we met at the Kickoff in 2013. Tartan has been very generous with his wisdom gained last year and also in passing on to me a very well travelled Spot, this will it's 3rd thru hike, he also lent me his whippet which maybe won't see to much action this year. Would so like to thank Root Beer Float PCT 2014 and the third member of that kickoff group, for great advice particularly in the food dept. I am hoping the third time is a charm as I planned on 2011 but the resession meant a couple more years working, finally kicked the work habit early 2013 so 2014 it was going to be, but nooo fate had other plans and medical issues put an end to that, so the coast seem clear for a run in 2015, fingers crossed!!! Not sure I will be making entries here every day but often enough to keep you interested I hope. Gear is all sorted, final base pack wieght will be between 10 and 11 lbs with Z Packs being most responsible for that, been using the same set up for the last couple years so hope it all continues working. Lastly thanks to Scout and Frodo who are so generous to so many of us beginning the trail each year. Looking forward to meeting many fine new people and enjoying 600 miles of desert hiking!!!
