We will start the talk by exploring the 2,650 mile trail on a physical level such as; geological features, landmarks, and the trail community. We will discuss topics ranging from how the Pacific Crest Trail was designated and created as well as trail community.
Living on trail for 4-6 months is daunting, we will cover the logistical and psychological aspects to be expected. Topics include the differences between thru-hiking and section hiking, “Hike your own hike”, common trail ailments, gear and resupplies.
The last segment will focus on my personal experiences and encounters with fellow hikers, recounting trail stories. Throughout the discussion I will encourage open conversation and questions from the audience.
