Hey, thanks! I never could've completed this hike without going so light. BPL was invaluable in helping me achieve that.
Next year I'm doing the PCT, and I want to do something beyond just a typical thru-hike. No certainties just yet, what with so many options & variables. Liz suggested I shoot for a 59-day unsupported AT hike after a "warm-up" on the PCT. Hmmm...that's just one crazy idea.
