Episode 20: The Pacific Crest Trail

PCT Calendar

In Episode 20, Thirty-Pack talks about his 2013 thru-hike on the 2,663 mile Pacific Crest Trail (PCT).  Over six months, he hiked 420,880 feet of elevation walking from Mexico to Canada along the western mountains of the U.S. This after he completed the Appalachian Trail on the East Coast in 2012 (see Episode #13).  Will the Continental Divide Trail and coveted Triple Crown follow in 2014?  Listen and find out.

Topics in this podcast include an injury that nearly ended his hike in California, deep snow in the Cascades, romance starting in the Sierra, and a discussion on the soon to be released Hollywood movie Wild which takes place on the PCT.
