As you may know, I will be keeping a Pacific Crest Trail blog for my upcoming hike. In this section, I will try to record the most useful information possible which can be used for anyone who decides to hike this trail in years to come.
Welcome to my Pacific Crest Trail Blog
As of this moment, I have little to share other than an update on my lack of preparations. In fact, aside from my permits, I have almost nothing planned for the upcoming hike which will inevitably mean an incredibly busy week leading up to the start date. I am not concerned or worried – only excited.
In case you might be asking yourself, I arrive in San Diego in 7 days time and will spend one week going back and forth to a nearby outdoor store. I am confident that between now and then, I can most of the preparations in order and then the rest of what needs to be done can happen out on the trail.
Last Days in Da Nang Vietnam
Although the best part of this year will revolve around my hike and the Pacific Crest Trail Blog, I have yet to reach America. In fact, I am still in Da Nang Vietnam and travel to Ho Chi Minh City this week to catch my flight to California.
As of now, I think my only regret will be the lack of physical preparation for the hike. That being said, I have quite a lot of experience in the outdoors and with long distance treks so this is not something which will matter for too long. Also, in no way will this put me in any danger but for real, I can now be sure of an incredibly slow and painful start to five months trekking across America.
