  1. Daniel,
    I am really looking forward to hearing about your hike as I so enjoyed the blurbs you wrote last summer when you returned. Wishing you all the best in your preparations.

  2. I may have to travel the PCT vicariously through you. It’s sounds so demanding and challenging. Maybe I could do it bit by bit and say I did it?! I look forward to reading and hearing more about your journey, which starts now. The journey has already begun. Keep us posted on your prep, the trip to the Mexican border and every step of the way. Behind you all the way!

    • Bit-by-bit counts! Lots of people hike the PCT this way, covering a new part of the trail each year. I was once chastised by a thru-hiker when I introduced myself as “just” a section hiker. “Never say just! You are a section hiker, so say it proudly! In two weeks you can hike further than most people ever dream of in a lifetime.”

  3. Hey Ratatouille,
    I totally get what you are saying about the waiting game. It seems like the trail is all I can think about. Only, for me, that’s mixed with an overwhelming sensation that there isn’t enough time to get everything on my “to do” list done. I think your podcast idea is awesome and can’t wait to hear it. I’m busy with details and logistics of getting my fundraiser off the ground before I leave. But hey, like you said, there is a fine line between inspiration and madness. Anyway, good luck with preparations… I’ll see you on the trail.
