Squad!(car)
Got a hitch from a cop. Hopefully the first and last time I get thrown into the back of a squad car... but you never know with these kind of things. •

Big Bear to Wrightwood 
369.3 266.1 =103.2I
It's stimulating seeing what other hikers are eating. Food to me at least, is a hot commodity out here. All sorts of nifty concauxtions having your tastebuds in remorse yelling at you for not coming up with or buying that in the last resupply . Its lame eating the same processed food group over and over again. Any little extra moral/energy boost to get me up and over that mountaun and back down and up again is much needed. The last thing i want during a long, painful day is to look in my food bag and say "well shit". Food is pretty much a guaranteed highlight every day for me. Feet hurt ? Got some sour gummy worms for that. Stomach rumbling at 5 am? Don't be a betty, Eat a snickers bar. Pretty much Any gossip about "real" food along the trail got me walking twice my normal speed, I've even been able to smell French fries from over 20 miles away no lie.My pack felt like it outweighed me coming out of Big Bear, 33.3% of my body weight if u want #s. Resupplies are tricky and my last one left my back saying no more. It's hard to fight this insationable hunger that is always tugging away at my innards. I've never been able to gobble down this much before, which beckens the question where the fuck was this during football season? I want to buy everything in sight, quadrupling the recommended diet trying my best to replace what I have lost. However, As my back would happily explain it comes at a deceptive price. It starts as ounces but turns to pounds before you can say Bob's your uncle. 
The trail just keeps getting better and better.Ostensibly I knew where the trail went before this trip. Yeah sure I could say it passes through here and there but to the amount of detail now, no way jose. Places that I've lapsed by time and time again I would have never guessed the trail to pass through. Being so familiar with the area (Or so I thought) it was rad discovering or reexploring this part of southern california. It has given me a fresh take on what I may have thought were mind numbing places.

OMG! By far the coldest night last night! I’ve got great gear, but 30 degrees is definitely the coldest I can go before being so uncomfortable it would ruin the next day.
::
This cold spell we’re having is putting a major damper on the trip. It’s been taking us at least an extra hour to get out of camp every morning causing us to lose 3-6 miles. 3-6mi for a couple days adds up and it looks like we’ll be arriving at our next resupply point on crumbs.
::
It’s also ruined our mid day breaks making it harder to get in our afternoon miles. It’s tough to relax when the sun barely keeps you warm enough to not shiver.
::
Overall this section has kicked our asses. 3 days of 5000’+ accents, it’s been cold as &@#%, there’s been no water, I have the sniffles and my cough is coming back. Add them up it’s more than enough to ruin your day.
::
We rolled up on developed campgrounds tonight. Our first fire on the PCT has warmed us up hopefully giving us a leg up on tonight's 30 degree temps.
::
Hoping tomorrow is a win because today was definitely a loser!

Day# 33 775 mi. / 1246 km.

Only 8 miles this day. We didn't go through Forester Pass because the weather wasn't promising, and the camping on the other side of the pass was going to be in high elevation, that means it was going to be cold. We preferred to stay warm and low for that day. We made a bonfire and we were ready to sleep at 15:00, it was kind of a rest day. We planned to have a tough #hikingday next morning.

PCT 2018 | Day 15 | Mile 209-219

Slept in at the motel and had a super late start. Since we're already in town, might as well hit up In N Out, Taco Bell, Churches Chicken and see some big ass Dinosaurs! 🐗

Hit the trail at around 430pm and headed to White Water Preserve.
We had some insane winds along the ridges. I seriously thought i was going to get blown off the cliff! Trekking poles kept me from flying away.

Congratulations on making it to the halfway point! 
@backwardshatforwardthinking "AT Day 65- Mile 1024.2
Blackburn Trail Center to ATC @ Harpers Ferry
Well folks, I started this journey as the 1221 registered hiker to leave Springer Mt (GA) on a trek to Mt Katahdin (ME). 65 days later, I am the 314 hiker to cross the unofficial halfway point in Harpers Ferry at the ATC headquarters. And with this stop, I am taking a few days off. Time to kick up the legs and let the injuries heal as much as possible. It’s been “some adjective that changes daily” adventure so far. I will be returning Tuesday at Midnight to attempt the 4 state challenge. Then, we continue onto Maine- y’all are coming with me! 🖤"

@jerry.hoony hooking it up with the #gopro footage. Looking back on these few days you can see the anguish on my face. It was mentally and physically challenging. No sleep due to stress over the next days climb or conditions. Hiking with this group was what pushed me through. It’s important to keep your spirits high. You might have shit weather but if you can laugh through that you can laugh through anything also if you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a ball. #pct2018 #rei1440project #gypsy #losangeles #sandiego #california #hike #takeahike #explore #exploremore #adventure #yearoftheadventure #coffee #craftbeer #mountains #sierras #wanderlust #salomon #pctig #travel #vanlife #pnw #trekking #hiking #trail #nature #theoutbound #wildernessculture #nationalpark

First night I have spent alone hiking through both the Te Araroa and the PCT. I ran out of water today, but hustled to squeeze 3.9 miles into that last dry hour and almost cried when I saw the stream because I was so happy. I perched up last night with beach front property. It was wonderful. This was the section that I was scared of mountain lions before starting. It is really not scary out here. Really!!

We are headed north! We really want to experience the Sierra in the summer months; it is such a huge part of why we are doing this hike. We are jumping on again at Donner Pass and walking north, returning to the Sierra in July sometime. 
#
We were turned back twice by weather at Tyndall Creek while making an attempt on Forester Pass. Once by a snow/thunder storm and again from a recent snow storm dropping feet of snow at the pass.
#
It may not be the plan we set out with, but for us this trip isn't about suffering and struggling through the Sierra just to say we did. We are hiking the trail to maximize our enjoyment in these beautiful areas. 
#
Best of luck and stay safe for those heading into the Sierra section. May the weather be better for you than it was for us! Happy Trails!

PCT Day 13: Getting blasted off trail by the heavy winds. No wonder this is where they build the second biggest windfarm in the States. And got passed by 6? trains that were at least 1km long. Some containers stacked double.... The Americans think/do things BIG

Hikertown. What a weird place.  A spot on the map of the PCT. If a jeopardy answer ever came up of “a property covered with sheds in the Mohave desert dressed up as a western town”. The correct response would be “what is hikertown?” It reminded me of the town of Johnsonville in the movie Blazing Saddles.  Not the real one the fake one. #pctig #pct2018 #pctclassof2018 #thruhike #hikertown #weird

If my legs were this long I’d be done by now.  The LA aqua duct is one of the most notoriously brutally hot and dry stretches on the PCT. Hiking for miles on end across the desert floor, without water, in the sun. The aqua duct is below your feet the entire time. Rushing water to lands beyond the reach of dirty sweaty hikers. Many folks night hike this stretch to avoid the heat. The day I was there the weather was unseasonably awesome. High in the upper 60’s made for perfect hiking. I hiked until 10:45 pm. I made the most of the time hiking alone and spent time on FaceTime friend some friends and family back home. I was able to see them and show them where I was and what I was up to. Incredible.  #pct #pctig #pct2018 #pctclassof2018 #thruhike #hiking #rei1440project #getyourfannyoutthere #shadow

“I will not tip toe my way through life only to arrive safely at my own death.” I have only seen 5 other people this week, all PCT hikers.  Apparently JMT hikers and bears don’t come out until the weather is nice.  We have been hailed, snowed, and rained on every day this week.  The thigh deep snow and water crossings have also insured that we will always be cold and wet.  It seems everyone has had at least one near death experience.  Mine was falling through a frozen lake.  My hiking partner, Nutz had to self arrest and ripped all the skin off the back of his hands!  Nevertheless, it’s been one of the best weeks of my life.  Love playing in the snow! 
Nothing is keeping us from Canada!

Yesterday was my favorite day on trail so far. After 22 hot miles, we spent the afternoon at this desert oasis, going back and forth 🏊🏼‍♂️ between the natural hot springs and the perfectly cool Deep Creek. Mile 307

And I got to climb it!!! Woohooooo! ✨😀 And watch the sun rise from it's peak.

Every day on the PCT is a new adventure with highest of highs and lowest of lows. You have you take each day and sometimes mile one step at a time. It can feel like you’re not moving fast enough, not being social enough, being too social, taking too many breaks, not taking enough, do I have the right gear, should I get new gear, the list goes on! I admit there are days that even in the simplicity that is hiking, I get caught in the rat race. Comparison is a slippery slope. It’s I have to remember to look back at the HUNDREDS of miles I’ve put behind me and remember that I am enough. My path doesn’t look the same as anyone else and I’m exactly where I need to be. It’s not always easy. So, today, remind yourself of this and be kind to yourself. You’re right where you need to be!! 😍💪💗

Day 35 This is one of my daily chores; filtering water. It’s felt like a good day today. I saw a coyote 🐺, it ran across the trail just in front of me. It didn’t hang around to have its picture taken. Camped at mile 623 👣 20 miles today and stoped nice and early.

The night sky, moments before beginning the ascent to Mt. Whitney 🏔️
On day four, hiking under hail and snow, we reached camp at the foothills of Mt. Whitney .
With our minds set on summitting it in time for sunrise, we began our ascent at 1am that same night.

I had already found that it was not good to be hiking alone, and so I made companionship with what there was around me, sometimes with nature and sometimes with my own insignificant self; but my camera was always my friend 📷🙌

Mile 595-615 | The last section has so many PCT tree markers, so I took photos of all of them, because... it’s the little things that make me happy!

Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. (Energy is the essence of life. Every day you decide how you're going to use it by knowing what you want and what it takes to reach that goal, and by maintaining focus). So keep hiking and enjoy the views 🙌

PCT Day 30: Decided to take the day off. Too many little things I've been been putting off needed addressing. That and I don't think my achilles is supposed to pop? Got new shoes and shorts from REI! Besides, if you're going to take an unplanned zero, Hiker Heaven is a great place to do it. Getting antsy though and ready to get back out there. Hopefully my body has the same plan tomorrow. 🤞 #pct #pct2018 #pctig #pacificcresttrail #thruhike #aguadulce #hikerheaven #california

“Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers… The world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting—over and over announcing your place in the family of things.”
-Mary Oliver

The Summit Shelter on Mt San Jacinto was a time capsule in itself. Built in 1933, the stone and timber shelter has a few rickety bunks, some emergency litters and hundreds of cuniform and chickenscratch written names.

Hiking the PCT isn’t only about trail time. Here, guidebook author and PCT hiker @tamiasars indulges in some nero time with random puppy snuggles and a hubcap-sized pancake at Grumpy Bears Restaurant in Kennedy Meadows. #kennedymeadows, #hikethepct, #bigpancake, #chihuhua, #hiking, #pct, #pctig, #getoutside, #gohiking, #hikecalifornia, #thruhike, #sectionhike, #trailtime
A perk off getting into camp late is watching the sun begin to set across the trail. However I definitely powered along those last few miles, so I wouldn't have to go through the fuss of getting my head torch out.

This is it! I started the Pacific Crest Trail on 5th of May. So far it has been an amazing adventure. I trudged, ran, sweated, laughed, cried. I soaked in the amazing variety of the landscapes, fell in love with my weird, happy little trailfamily and enjoyed the awesome kindness and generosity of so many trailangels. Most of the time I was too tired/ lazy/ busy to post anything here. But I try to share some pictures from now on. Stay tuned. ***

SOOOO unbelievably stoked for @allllwright to set out on his attempt at getting the fastest known time on the PCT! He’s going to need to average almost 50 miles a day from Mexico to Canada. 🤯 Follow the adventure -> @allllwright!

PCT 2018 | Day 14 | Mile 190-209

The descend from Jacinto to the desert floor took forever. 19 miles to the highway under pass and about 5 miles away from Cabazon.

It was too windy to setup camp, so a group of us took Uber into town to resupply and split motel room. Two showers in a week! A new personal record! 👍

Oh hey.. 200 mile marker. Slowly hammering along. 🐢

PCT를 걸으며 불에 그을리고 훼손된 나무들을 자주 보게된다. 어찌된 화재이든, 이 멋진 자연이 잘 보존되길 바래본다.

Day 34 Bit of a slow day today; wasn’t really feeling it! 👣 only 18 miles. Camped at mile 603. I did pass 600 miles today.

Curious little wan. Little 🦎 running all over the place; right under your feet, right under your poles, and, sometimes, if you're lucky, they'll run along the trail with you for a bit.

We climbed out of the fog this morning and up up up we went, about 5000 ft of net elevation gain. There were beautiful wildflowers and I listened to a 3 part Radiolab podcast series about the US/Mexico border and immigration which I would definitely recommend. Very interesting stuff especially because I have seen personal belongings from people coming across the border ditched by the trail. Crazy.

The promise of burgers and milkshakes is enough to drive any Thru hiker to walk 38 miles in a day.

Video walking above Cajon Pass. Windy, but beautiful with the inversion. ×

Day 24
PCT Day 9
Miles: 38
Injuries: Shins and thighs, thighs and shins
Weather: Warm, but still very nice.

Great day today, made the miles and injuries seem to be improving. It's been a weird ride hiking in this style, meeting so many hikers, but only once. Hitting resupplies quickly, but never staying. Enjoying the moments as much as we can... #mmiw #mymountainiswaiting #pct2018 #pctig #ctc2018 #thruhike #cajonpass

Impressions from the hardest part of the #PCT so far! #pctig #hiking #pct2018 #pctclassof2018
I’ve filtered hundreds of gallons of water but these two liters were by far the dirtiest looking beforehand. Thanks to my @katadyn_group BeFree I was able to filter my water faster than everyone else around me because of the sheer volume of debris in the water. What a day! #onefilter #katadyn #water #filter #nature #pctig #pct2018 #trekthepct

PCT DAY 4 | 28 miles | I finally slept there under the bridge in the sand, sheltered by the wind and when I woke I felt like I’d been awakened  from a week long dream. We set off early in the cool morning, climbing up from Scissors Crossing into the hills. I stripped my layers off when the sun touched the ridgelines. Pockets of warm sunlight cut across the path and then I was all alone up there - for what felt like the first time on trail so far and I had to stop just to take it all in. This overwhelming feeling of finally opening my eyes to where I was. This was everything I had wanted for so long. I was right there walking the path I had so desperately longed to walk again. It was bittersweet to feel both so at home and still at the back of my mind still unsure if this is what I wanted at all - to be here again - to relive what I had already lived, but I walked on anyway through the sun bleached hills along that familiar sandy path because it felt right to do so. My heart both half empty and half full. Not quite knowing yet what I was looking for this time. Will I love this trail to death? Did I make the wrong choice? I guess I’ll have to figure that out. Evening found my little group wandering through meadows with soft rolling hills in the golden light. We cowboy camped under Eagle Rock that night as the wind kicked up and the light finally drained from the sky. The stars came out in the inky black sky and then there was nothing left to do but sleep.

Crabtree meadows was the gateway to mount Whitney. After waking up at 3am and getting back just before 2pm we opted to relax for the rest of the day so we could have an easy 12 mile hike to the base of forester pass. Well...I expected to wake up to sunshine and birds chirping. Instead we woke up to snow and below freezing temps. Our 12 mile “easy” hike involved postholing and snow hiking. After 10 hours of hiking we finally made it to camp at the base of forester pass. What an incredible experiences. But damn it was cold!

Mile 517.6 - Got my new pair of trail runners today! Exact same shoe just half a size bigger. Look how dead my last pair were. I've been having a horrible time with my feet and my calf the last 2 days and with wear and tear like that it's not that hard to see why

Day 33 I have sore feet today! I think this may be that I’m overdue for new shoes (which are waiting for me in 115 miles time). I also thought I might have seen a mountain lion 🦁 for a few seconds when I saw 4 tan coloured legs out the corner of my eye above and in front of me. I was both relieved and disappointed in equal measure when it turned out to be a small deer. I think I might have mountain lions on my mind as there was a news story 2 days ago about one killing a cyclist in Washington (state). Camped at mile 586 👣 21 miles today.
