Pacific Crest Trail Map

43 Days Remaining

Hiking the PCT has always just been a thought, a dream for me since I was 14 years old. Once you speak a thing out loud, it becomes real. Not a snowball, but an avalanche.

In the last few months I have spoken the words, sold my home and pressed pause on the career that has defined me for the last 10-plus years. Nine days remain in my tenure with my company and the excitement is growing. Forty three days until I step off from the southern terminus and the waiting is excruciating. This weekend I will turn 35, surrounded by friends and family, trying to explain why I am literally walking away from my life to sleep in a tent in unwashed socks. How do you explain that to anyone?
