Decision to Go / Length and duration of Hike.

March 2015, I made decision to Hike a large portion of the PCT in 2017. I live in Brisbane, Australia, so I have quite a few logistical problems to confront before I can commence my hike.
I can get a maximum of 150 days off work, which is 2 years annual leave plus long service leave.
This does not give me enough time to Hike the entire PCT and travel to and from Australia. I have picked a part of the Trail that most appeals to me.

So plan is to start at Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park and hike thru to Manning Park in Canada. Total Miles is 1740, so should take me around 110 days to complete,taking into account Zero/Town days on the trail. I don't want to rush, but also want to be up in Manning Park before serious snow arrives..so looking at no later than late September finish.
I have just spent the last 5 months buying and testing gear,and am now happy with what I have.
