Pacific Crest Trail Map

Journal Entry

Hey there, just a small note to who I am, The names Patti, I'm 49 y/o am planning to hike the PCT NOBO in 2016, Im not even sure why really except that I feel like this is part of a journey I started three years ago, after leaving the 9to5 lifestyle and going into traveling for seasonal work, Im currently in Emigrant Montana at a guest ranch living with 3 20-somethings. I love this lifestyle but feel like I need to extend myself.

I know that a hike like this can be extremely expensive, and that is a major concern of mine as I have very limited income and will have none during the hike. I am however very good at being frugal and cutting corners whenever I can. One of the kids that live in the house here is a huge hiker and he's planning on doing the AT next fall, I have been getting tons of advice from him and product tips. I have so far ordered my stove, a sawyer squeeze (thanks Hunter)gotten my pack and hoping to get other bigs at a rei garage sale next fall! I got my pack early so I can get some training in with it.I bought a Sierra designs 65 Jubilee, I tried on 5other packs, a rei, 2 dueters, a kelty, and a osprey, I almost got the dueter before finding the Sierra, but I thought..hmmm since its not a high ender name it probably will fall apart, but the salesman reassured me that its a good and strong pack, about mid weight too. I got it for 184. Im pretty happy s far.
