Pacific Crest Trail Map

I think I'm ready

I'm packed, my first resupply box is sent, and I have 8 days to go. I have spent hours doing research and reading other hikers journals. I started planning this walk a year ago. I have lost 40 lbs and started working out. Every day I ask myself if I'm crazy. I 58 years old and I will be walking 450ish miles in 20ish days. This is something I wanted to do in my twenties but life happened as its does for most of us. Well, now the kids are grown and gone (not far tho) and I am mostly of sound body so I would like to give it a try. Pam, my wife is a bit nervous and so am I. This is way out of my comfort zone. If I make it I will have stories and something to be proud of, if I fail, then I tried, that's more than most people can say.
