Thank God!  Nooooo, I didn't mean it that way.  ; )

You have to have faith.  How else could you have a blessed time, scramble a 
14,000 footer, not to mention bump into a cute blonde, ranger slash 

I think you're absolutely going to love the PCT, as long as you don't get 
spoiled by the Rockies in the meantime.  

By the way, did you do a loop or a section between trailheads?  CT, CDT or 
other trail(s), and how was the navigation?  What did you cook on?

Curious mind, wants to know.

Thanks, Sly
