Please allow me to also chime in with Ned's comments, agreeing that all of
us, who hiked the PCT many, many years ago, still feel deeply and passionately
about the experience and yearn for the freedom and self realization that it
once burned into our lives. I live each day contemplating another opportunity.
I find it impossible to say "No" to those who aspire to hike the PCT and ask
for advice or help. I find a drive within my soul to help inspire. The seed
was planted long ago and the tree now flourishes within my soul, planting new
seeds as I go.

Hiking the Crest is a life changing experience....
No one who has done it will deny it was pivotal and did not have recurrent
effects throughout the rest of their lives. Sounds like a grand adventure and
it is, but its waters run very deep into our very Spirits. Each who goes
his or her own reasons for going, and if they say it's for the "conquest,"
then they aren't looking beyond the surface.
I applaud your decision. Prepare thoroughly and well. Seek wise council
from those who have gone before. I hiked the Crest back in '74 when
were different but the fundamentals are still the same today. I live in
Sonoma and would be happy to be at your service in any way my experience
