[pct-l] Report from the Outback!!
Hot off the press!! Info from White Pass. Got to see Anne and Chicago Dave
this weekend . Rolled up to the pass Sat. around 10:00am and saw Dave and
Anne, did a quick trip down the hill to Packwood to resupply and ate lunch.
Also saw Gilligian, puff and smoke-less in Packwood. Gave smokeless one of my
Roy Robinson knock-off stoves. ( Also gave one to Gilligian as his Cole man
Peak One died out) Drove back up to the Pass and sleep well. Up early and
hiked past Shoe lake to Hidden Spring and met " The Waffle King" who is about
to finish his 4th PCT thru-hike and runs a Hostel near the AT. ( He did PCT
in 97.98,99 and this year) Last year he did the CDT and have hiked the AT
twice.) Then met " Drew " short for Andrew who sarted his trip April 7th and
" Bud" who started April 2nd. Great weather today with lots of sun and no
clouds. Saw a nice 5 point bull elk this morning at 30 yards away. Sept. is
the best time to hike in this State.
