My name is Kurt Van Der Dijs, I recently finished hiking the Appalachian Trail, 2180 miles across the eastern U.S. and am now planning a west coast hike. My purpose here is simple to help raise funding for this journey and to also work together to protect, preserve, and promote the Pacific Crest Trail. The hike Is 2663 miles from the U.S. Mexico border near Campo California to Canada. The money will be used strictly to help fund food drops and supplies along the trail. No splurging, no extras. 20% of all donations recieved by myself will in turn be donated to the Pacific Crest Trail Association to protect the Pacific Crest Trail, and communicate our commitment to conservation and the active outdoor lifestyle. Pay it forward. This will not cover the entire cost of the trip it will only help supplement my expenses. I will start in April and will likely end in September.
