The Plan

Planning, and prepping, for the PCT can take just as long as the actual hike. Luckily, there are tons of great resources out there to help. I relied heavily on the information I found from Halfmile & Ian ["Dirtwolf"] Crombie (my partner in hiking crime and my backpacking guru!)

My hiking plan consists of smaller sections broken up by resupply locations. The section days, and resupply dates, are estimates. There are countless factors that could cause a change in my schedule (my hiking speed, the weather, a distractingly beautiful mountain lake, etc). I want to stay open to surprises and to my story unfolding as it happens. The unpredictability of the journey is what makes it an adventure!
