I have used my journal as the basis of a book about my hike with the title: A Temporary Change of Address. Here is the book description in case you are interested:

Cloud Rider takes us along on his fascinating journey hiking the 2,650 mile long Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). Within these pages, you will find a daily record in words and pictures of his thru-hiking experience interspersed with interesting thoughts about the hike, hikers, food, water, animals, the nature of the trail, and many other topics. Although it includes some excellent references, statistics, and an awesome gear list, this is not a guidebook. It is also not a drama. It’s about the preparation, the hike, and wide variety of reflections. If you are interested in hiking the PCT, this book will prepare you for your thru-hike by familiarizing you with what it’s like, what you need to think about, what you should prepare for, and most importantly, what to expect. Having realistic expectations is one of his most important tips for how to finish the hike. If you do not plan to hike but want to find out what it’s like, this book will make you part of the adventure. Either way you’ll feel like you hiked the PCT.

You can find the book here.

A Temporary Change Of Address

This is probably my mid-life crisis. How can one know? Anyway, I've been working and being responsible for 30 years and it is time for a break and to indulge in an adventure. I plan to start at the Mexican border and then to walk until I run out of trail.
