Sid

Hey! My name is Sid, I hail from Mumbai, India but I have been living in Vancouver, BC for over 11 years now. I am an Embedded Systems Engineer and I spend most of my time developing software for electronics. I like the outdoors and I like doing things outside - I like trail running, I like climbing rocks, and I like finding spots with good views. I also like computers, and dogs. I have maybe spent a total of 20 nights in a tent in my life so far? Though that's about to change! Follow along as I attempt to thru-hike the PCT and increase that count by about 150?

Weeks 2-3 on the PCT brought me from Julian to Big Bear Lake, challenging me with diverse desert terrains and rewarding me with profound personal growth. Alongside my fellow hikers, I tackled the rugged San Jacinto summit and navigated the tricky Mission Creek, finding both trials and triumphs in the wilderness. As I adapted to trail life, forming bonds and routines, every step reaffirmed my resolve and readiness for the journey ahead.
