Pacific Northwest Trail Map

PNT Hike Starts Soon

I mailed off my first resupply box today for my Pacific Northwest Trail
(PNT) Hike this summer. I leave Saturday to fly to Kalispell with my wife
Ellie, daughter LiAnna and son-in-law Alex to start the hike near Chief
Mountain in Glacier National Park. It is the same place I started from on
the Continental Divide Trail in 2005 but instead of heading south this time
I will head west, hopefully arriving at the Pacific Ocean by the middle of

As on my other hikes, I will try to keep a journal--this time on my phone
instead of the large pocket mail device I used on the CDT or the positively
quaint paper and pencil I used on the PCT. I will save the journal entries
on the phone until I arrive somewhere with cell and/or wifi service where I
can send them off. Given the sparse nature of such services there may be
times where I cannot update this journal for a couple of weeks. So don't
worry (Ellie will do enough of that for everyone), I will update you as
soon as I can.

I don't really feel like going into all the how's and why's of the hike at
this time. I suspect most of that will get covered as I go. I expect to be
surprised along the way and if you invest your time in reading this
journal, hopefully my writing will convey some of the wonder of some of the
remaining wild lands in this nation. Keep in mind that a hike is a lot like
life--there are good days and bad days, with the varied emotions that life

Let's see what happens!
