[pct-l] poor old Ray

I did a small section of the PCT this summer at about 20 miles/day - I envisioned this as a trial run for one day when I might do the whole thing.  

You know what?  I didn't enjoy it all that much.

No time to sit and watch the sun go down over the lake, or scramble up that nearby peak, or eat a leisurely breakfast, or talk with that interesting couple that I met on the trail, etc. because I had to get the miles in.  That's not what I go backpacking for.  

I guess that probably rules me out as a thru-hiker although I still intend to do the whole thing piece by piece.

Just another perspective.
