That is the big question. I’m flying to San Diego tomorrow. I will join 2 wonderful ladies I met at ALDHA West last September plus about 10 others. The plan is to hike as far as we get until April 25th. Then go back to ADZPCTKO. It’s such a great gathering. Since 2009 when I hiked the PCT, I’ve attended this every year except last year.
I have a ticket to fly home the 28th. But will I want to leave the PCT? Will I be able to leave? I love the PCT. I think of so many places I will get to see again. Different time of day. Different people. Lots of new trail angels. This thought started one week ago. Is it possible to get ready for a thruhike in one week? I’ve made up some “just in case” resupply boxes.
More than ever, this hike will be one day at a time. I’m excited. I get to be Why Not again.
