72 Year old Grandfather doing PCT on 05/21/2010 09:44:27 MDT Print View

I was looking for some PCT trail conditions and ran across this blog. This guy is 72 and has had two knee replacements. I am going to follow this one, and hope others here do the same.

As of 5/16/2010 he was at mile 370 in Wrightwood. He started 4/20/2010. Sounds like he is going light. Maybe some of the BPLers doing the PCT will comment also.

That is wonderful.

Back in 2007 when I did the Tour de Mont Blanc, I met a 93 year old Italian man also doing it. 93!!!
