So It Begins

After years of planning, watching videos, reading, and fantasizing, the time has finally come. Cynthia and I are going to start the PCT… and we are looking forward to it. 18th of April. Here we come!

Introducing. My name is Kelvin. Twenty-seven years young, from the Netherlands and currently working in defense. My partner in crime is cynthia. Also 27 years young and working as a car mechanic.

After the west highland way, a roadtrip through australia, a traintrip through japan and the GR20 it is finally time. Covid has been reduced and the world is opening up again. Time to start the adventure because if we have learned anything in recent years it is that it is now or never.

Gear…. not super light. Not super heavy. Definitely not gear freaks. And we’re going to find out what we use and what we don’t.

In conclusion, we are tremendously looking forward to it. Healthy tension alternating with enthusiasm. Can’t wait to discover America and get to know people. See you on the trail and safe travels.
