about each other.
That is how I feel right now about preparing (still) for the PCT, and my
job. Both are interesting, and challenging; each (if they knew; if I
allowed them to know) jealous of the other; each wants to consume my entire
life and concentration and loyalty; and (though they don't know) each needs
the other for its very existence.
Digest # 908 was one of the best I've read; appreciate the stories.
Lately I've been wondering if (with all the talk of clearcuts and
unnecessary picnic tables and unwanted views of eroded earth) the PCT is
still worth it; if perhaps while I still have the time I should switch,
perhaps to the CDT. Anyone who's done the PCT thru-hike lately (last
couple of years) have an opinion? I've been starting to get the feeling
that, for too much of it, the walk will be like hiking Florida to Maine on
the shoulder of I-95, without the convenience of fireworks stores and the
Mexican Sombrero restaurant.
