PCT South California / 14.04.2018

Hiked 22.1 miles today, At mile 318 I’m laying here under the stars in the California desert with the Big Dipper, handle down in front of me. It is a pleasant cool windless night. I’ve dropped 2000 feet since last night’s camp. Great place to type a blog. The highlight of the day was hot springs and the hike down deep creek gorge. For miles I walked along the wall of the gorge gazing down at deep pools of water hundreds of feet below. It seemed like all hikers were...

Hiked 20.9 miles today, at mile 295.9 My pack is heavier, but I am eating much better. With plenty of snacks, I munch when my energy gets low.

Tonight I made Couscous with sausage gravy loaded with sausage. I ate some of it in a tortilla. Hikers will tell you that anything can be wrapped in a tortilla. Usually a PCT...

PCT South California / 12.04.2018

Hiked 8.9 miles. At mile 275 Nice to be in a room with only 3 bunks. They must purposely put people together with something in common because I am bunking with a couple of guys closer to my age. I’m with Time Out and Gopher from England. I took my time leaving the hostel in the morning. I repackaged and organized my food and gave away some that was more than I needed for 6 days. I think I must have shopped for groceries while under the spell of hiker...

PCT South California, PCT Thru Hike / 11.04.2018

Hiked 10 miles, at mile 266.1 I dropped in behind Google and Pusher and speed hiked the last 3 miles to Hwy 18. From there Papa Smurf  drove us to Big Bear. Thanks Mama and Papa Smurf for the coke on the trail and the 2 rides today. Also thanks to Matt for picking me up when I didn’t even have a thumb out.  Tonight in Big Bear Hostel My legs are feeling the pain from hiking fast. We were doing a little better than 3 mph is my guess....
