PCT Thru-hike, 2014: Questions on 05/13/2013 08:52:10 MDT Print View

Hi everyone!

The 2014 PCT Thru hike will be my first serious hike.

At the time, I will be 32, Male, 220 LBS, 6'2"

I'm curious how often I should plan to resupply, and if anyone has a calorie suggestion for my age/weight/distance travelling.

I don't know anything about packing food for a long distance hike, so I've got a lot to learn.

Are there any complete food guides / lists for a PCT thru hike? I think that would be a long list... ;-)

100+ calories per oz? (28g) for best food to weight ratio?

I prefer to cook as little as possible, at most I really just want to boil water.

I have no special food requirements.

Any/All help is appreciated!
