Pacific Crest Trail Map

Damm

Years ago before the MOVIE i was working in San Diego. Some contractors were talking about the trail, they were headed there after this startup was competed. I dreamed of walking and challanging myself in the beautifully wow landscpes that the Sierras would offer. I searched and reseached the internet on The PCT and the equipment you would need. I started to buy my stuff and was getting ready. I drive two days and get to Lone Pine and the freaking Cottonwood Pass is engulfed in smoke from a fire. Thats where i was starting my Virgin trip. I get to the permit office and find out your not entering thru Cottonwood, i get rerouted to Mt. Whitney. In Lone Pine that morning i picked up some people needing a ride to the permit office. They were experinced guys and had sized my up from our conversation and warned me against Mt. Whitney . I did not go i P-ssed out. Im glad i did. I headed up to Bishop to try catching the trail at Southlake. I broke a rule of hiking here,you should not go above 9000ft in one day (drove up) not bueno for the body. since my plans were shot, i hastily drove up there wanting so bad to get on the trail. I get out of the truck get my pack on and start heading up the trail.......I cant breath im sucking donky balls for air WTF im thinking whats wrong. i go 2 miles and turnaround i struggle to make it back to the truck thats parked at the Southlake parking lot trailhead. With my lungs between my legs i limply drove down to Bishop. Damm.
