And my journey is starting…

Since about two months ago – end of January to be exact – my decision was clear. This is the year I will fullfil my dream and hike the PCT.

I had played with that idea since my John Muir Trail hike in 2016. I met many PCT hikers in that summer… And nearly all of them were amazing… Had inspiring stories to tell. I ended up hiking for several weeks with the nicest ones EightKnots, Waffle and SixStrings – and we still keep contact. EightKnots truly fell in love with the trail, so did SixStrings… They met by accident (!!!) again on the PCT in 2017 in an effort to complete their hike. Waffle fell in love not only with the trail but on the trail… Congratulations once again Waffle to the beautiful PCT baby!

I contemplated to hike the PCT in 2017 – at the end I was not brave enough to quit my job at that time. That was good. The trail conditions in 2017 were very difficult – lots of snow and wild fires… The PCT class of 2017 is the class of fire and ice.

So… 2018 is my year. I wish for an amazing experience like I had on the JMT… Just longer, more intense… Meeting nice people, having friendly chats, breathtaking views of the nature and wilderness, solitude once in a while…

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks – John Muir

Today I fly out. 2 days to trail.
