Rose here to tackle a North Bound Thur hike of the PCT! Trail name is Stretch, simply because I’ll religiously perform a 20-30 minute stretching routine each night on trail. I’ve accomplished the AT in two LASHes (long ass section hike) in 2021 and 2022. Originally from New York (mile 1406 on the AT) but recently spent 6 months in Idaho to go skiing and wait till I can hit the PCT.
