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.

Blue Skies Ahead

With five months until I depart for the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), I’ve been leaving my training hikes until the evening as the morning sun is way too hot here around this time of year. Things will continue to heat up until the end of January next year. I struggle with the heat even when not hiking, which is something I’m mentally preparing myself for before I take on the PCT.

Six Months Out!

A few minutes before starting the day, I just lay in bed thinking of everything I had to accomplish. A couple of months prior, I took comfort in knowing that I still had more than six months to prepare for the massive 4,264km (2560 miles) hike ahead of me. This morning presented a significant day. It finally marked six months before I’d depart Australia for the United States before heading out on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). Time had suddenly turned from ticking – to tick-tocking.
