I have heard that the first person to hike the entire PCT (as it was then)
was Martin Papendick, who hiked it in 1952. I think it was north to south.
He had hiked the AT the previous year. Heard about this from ALDHA-West.
Last I heard he lived in a care center in Hillsboro, OR.
As to Eric Ryback, I read his account of hiking the CDT. What amazed me was
his ability to get along on so little food. When he and his brother got to
town, they split a package of hostess cupcakes. A package of two! His name
came up a few years ago in an investment publication. He was promoting an
energy producing company in the Four Corners area. Hmmm.
