Just do it!

The decision has been made: I’m quitting my job and getting off the band wagon (at least for a while) in order to pursue one of my dreams – to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. 4265 km (2650 miles) through some of the most beautiful scenery in the U.S., possibly in the world! From the scorching deserts of Southern California, through the high alpine of the Sierra Nevada and the vast forests of Oregon and Washington, and hopefully, all the way to Manning Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada. For half a year my life will be all about the trail, about getting up in the morning and walking towards my destination, carrying everything I need on my back. Half a year of living life the way we’re supposed to – following our dreams. What an adventure! I am starting from Campo, California in early May, hoping to reach Canada sometime before October. I am starting out solo, but I am not afraid that I’ll be hiking alone. Around 300 hikers are starting from Campo in April/May each year, and I know that there’s a great community on the PCT. I am looking forward to all the people I will meet and all the things I will experience on my way. I want to share this journey with family, friends and everybody else who wants to follow me. I hope you enjoy the adventure. Stay tuned.
