Pacific Crest Trail – Update on the Kick Off
(The Barracuda standing at the official start of the PCT in Campo, CA.
Behind him you see the ominous fence marking the U.S/Mexican border.)
If this format doesn't match what you are use to seeing, it is because I, Jules, will be posting weekly updates to the blog while the family is hiking the PCT. I will do my best to keep the same tone and vibe you are use to reading, but I will confess upfront that I am a bit of a Luddite and not very computer savvy. This post will also be a quick update, but I will post again this weekend with more details.
As I type this, The Barracuda and Brynn are well into their first hundred mile section of the PCT. After all the stressful days of planning and packing, I think they were both happy to be underway and in the car this past Thursday. After a two day, 18 hour rode trip, we made it to Campo, CA. I was lucky enough to hike the first 20 mile section with them and see them off. Despite truly sweltering conditions and many dry water sources, they are in great spirits and moving north. As you can imagine, I'm quite proud of them both.
