I'm Nate Palmer (He/Him) and I'm thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail NOBO! I'm an old soul and a bit of a masochist at heart. I find meaning in identifying opportunity in adversity and sharing my happiness with others. I joined The Trek as a creative outlet and hope to share my journey with you in all of its glory: laughs, tears, and sour gummy worms!
Dive into my first week on the PCT and find out what my trail name is!
"The largest snowpack since the 1950s." Are you already tired of hearing about it too? Rather than focus on the negativity and fear surrounding the expected adversities of this year, what about the positives?
Take a look at my "Big 4" and other gear favorites for my PCT Thru-Hike!
The terminus is now, in each present moment. Loving the process - the ultimate goal is to be present in every moment, not dwell in expectation of the destination.
I’m Nate Palmer (He/Him) and beginning in May of 2023 I’ll be attempting a thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail northbound (NoBo)!
