The Feels Wow. It’s finally happening. It’s not going to begin and it’s not finished. It’s in the present. I am a PCT thru-hiker. A very novice one,
Let’s complete a brief water consumption exercise, shall we?
How many calories did I consume on the JMT? No clue. Was it enough? No. Hiker hunger is real.

As I type this I am exactly 4 weeks away from beginning my thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. My name is Dan, I’m a Leo, and I love backpacking. Well, I think I love backpacking. I really loved backpacking the John Muir Trail in 2018 with my wife and two friends. I loved it so much that I think I will love backpacking from Mexico to Canada for 4-5 months. If one is good, two is better. Right?
