Pacific Crest Trail adventure

Update posted by snailtrainer On Mar 29, 2014

Just over two weeks to got. Doubts arise. Was it the right thing to do? What about my job? What am I going to do when I come home? I deliberately stepped out of cosy security into a great risk. Rent is not going to pay itself. What if I get hurt early on and have to cancel my hike? Fears pop up everywhere. And yet excitement is greater than it ever was before.

I will take each day as it  comes , every  day  I will learn something new
I can do this , it’s a challenge  but  I can do it , Although  it will be a steep learning  curve
I believe I have the knowledge but maybe not the experience , But ill earn that

The closer I get to my actual start date, the more a certain type of restlessness teases me.

Have I got everything, will that shirt be okay or should I swap it for the REI one

Roger your kit is fine you have everything, and if you haven’t you can buy it there

It's a strange agitation about the unknown ahead. The unknown after the trail, well I’ll worry about that in October!!


Now that everyone has accepted my decision it is me who's getting worried. So, why am I still determined to pull this through? It's not yet too late to abort the mission, right?

Hiking 2640 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail


Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail (PCT) is a treasured pathway through some of the most outstanding scenic terrain in the United States. Beginning in southern California at the Mexican border, the PCT travels a total distance of 2,650 miles through California Oregon, and Washington until reaching the Canadian border. The route passes through 25 national forests and 7 national parks.

It is going to be an amazing trip and will push my boundaries of strength  and stamina .The trail mixes remote desert with high altitude mountain ranges intense  heat and bitter cold .I will be walking for 180 days carrying my tent and food on my back  and living in the wilderness  only  coming off the trail to resupply  before re-joining  

This is a personnel adventure ,But I will also be supporting Sobel House Hospice and hope to raise significant  funds for them


Any donations will be warmly received thanks in advance#
