Reaching Canada

As we navigated our way through the last mud covered switchbacks of the PCT (Pacific Crest Trail), we caught a glimpse of Monument 78 standing proudly on the border between the United States of America and Canada. This monument had been in our sights for more than five months. Even in the initial planning phase of the 2650 mile (4286km) journey, this was always – without ‘ifs or buts’ – our ultimate goal.

Day 001 – Northbound – The First Few Miles

Today’s Milage: 12.1mi (19.47km)
US/Mexican Border: (0.0mi) to Bushcamp: (12.1mi)
Remaining Miles to Canada: 2637.9mi (4245.28km)

It was 3:50am – my eyes opened. As I went to take my earplugs out I could see my brother Kenyon was already gearing up for the day. I stared at the tarp above me knowing what my brother and I were in for.

Departure – San Diego Bound!

Firstly, I’d like to thank my parents for being such wonderful trail hosts. They put me, their homeless son, up for a few months while I prepared for my trip over to the United States.

United Training

It’s actually quite an accomplishment to be well prepared for a thru-hike. By well prepared, I mean prepared in all areas which include training, equipment, knowledge of the region and it’s weather, a setup of communications while abroad from family and friends, permits, visa extensions, itineraries, finance for the trip as well as for ongoing home requirements.
