Today I officially put in my request for a leave of absence to hike the PCT this coming up summer. I have the gear locked in, been doing long distance runs and hikes for the last year and have taken the final step to making this a reality. So, if all goes well I will leave Campo on May 22nd with the goal of hitting Canada in 100 days. Fingers Crossed!!!!

Best of luck, Greg. That's a worthy challenge.

That's awesome Greg!! I'll be leaving Campo in April, but I'm sure we might meet up on the trail at some point. I'll be the funny looking guy! :) Best of everything to you in your prep and journey!

After all of the equipment is ready, you have to get consumables. What is a typical operating budget for a PCT trip?
