Just wondering if anyone had seen/heard from/ or knows anything about a
friend of mine who is on the trail.. Last I heard, he was near Lake Tahoe in
His name is Justin Davis, and I think he is hiking with his girlfriend (
Katrina). I kind of lost touch with him when I quit the job that we worked
together at. But I'd really like to know how he's doing on the trip..
Justin Davis is doing very well and will probably finish the trip (be in
Canada) in about 1 month. He is somewhere around Ollalie Lake, Oregon
right now. He is currently walking with a person called "Treetop". Justin
is planning to be in Timberline Ski area tomorrow (Aug. 29) and will be
celebrating his 21st birthday there.
Katrina had planned on hiking the entire trail but has developed burnout.
She hiked for 60 days (from Mexico to Tuolumne Meadows) with Justin and
then decided to take a few weeks off. After a few weeks off (and a
vacation with the family), she rejoined Justin at Old Station, CA. Two
days later at Burney Falls, their backpacks were stolen from the trail
while they were at a nearby creek filling their water bottles. They came
home to regroup and resupply and were back on the trail 5 days later.
About a week later (near Mt. Shasta), Katrina decided she was just plain
tired of walking 25 miles a day. At that point she came home again, got
her car and drove back to Oregon to be a "trail angel" for Justin and the
other PCT hikers who happen to be going through. She has now decided she
is ready to hit the trail again and is planning to join Justin for the trip
