PCT sponsership on 05/01/2009 15:01:35 MDT Print View

Howdy

a few friends and I are planning a thru-hike of the PCT for next summer. Only problem is that we're all either biologists or teachers in training (i.e. POOR!). What would our chances of seeking any sort of sponsership be?
Not anything crazy but maybe enough to cover some of our costs.
We all have gear and are experienced backcountry travellers.

Thoughts?

I'm not sure about "sponsership" on 05/01/2009 15:30:21 MDT Print View

But Andrew Skurka has a blurb about sponsOrship on his website: www.andrewskurka.com

Learning to spell it right might be a good start. =)

For a couple of non-famous first time long distance hikers, getting actual cash is highly unlikely. But that's coming from me, who is perhaps the only case of it actually ever happening. I got paid to GPS the trail by Backpacker Mag. I did backpacker.com/pct and no, they probably don't want to pay you to do it again.
