RE: [pct-l] My first mesg

Yes that was the term that I read "yo-yo".  If one was to try doing a 
"yo-yo" the PCT, would be smart to start from the north or south end? 
Not that I would try this on my first try.

To do a yo-yo you need to start in the South. The hiking season in the North
is too short due to snow. You'd also need to be on a 3.5 month pace. That's
3.5 months S-N then 3.5 months N-S. Or averaging 25 miles per day non stop.

Where does one come up with these aliases or nicknames?

Yo-Yo came from AT thu-hikers. It has been done a number of times on the AT.

There is someone attempting to do a PCT-AT in 12 months thru-hike this
summer. By doing the PCT first they stand a chance of finishing. It was
unsuccessfully attempted several years ago.
