What is my obsession with the PCT? I dont know..but I am obsessed. My hubby wont do the thru hike with me in 2010 - is it that hard to take off 5 months from work! haha...I fear that if we wait until 2015 when he retires I will be to old and crippled - nothing prednisone cannot cure I am sure! I will start stocking up now...but then I would be the only person to finish a 2,650 mile, 5 month thru hike fatter! This is a pic of me last week hiking a section of the PCT along Silverwood lake in the San Bernardino Mountains.
