Holy crap, I Did My First Thru HikeI quit my job, stuffed my pack full of lightweight gear and too many electronics, kissed my girlfriend goodbye, and went West to hike 2600 miles* on the Pacific Crest Trail. I'll be posting stories, images, video, tips, gear lists, and thoughts about the adventure here. Hope you enjoy the adventure!
*Due to wild fires in Northern California, Oregon, and Washington there were several sections that I did not hike. To my best estimates, I came up short by about 500 miles, and opted not to return to Oregon for the majority of those miles, preferring to let the damaged areas recover so I can do the whole state in its full splendor... someday.
Anyway, I hope to be posting a lot of PCT-related content in the coming months, and giving it a permanent home on this page.

Back when I was planning the hike, I imagined blogging from the trail. Hell, I couldn't even keep up with Instagram while on the trail. These four pathetic posts are all that remains of my ambition. May it rest in peace.
