    Met him four times on my almost-thru-hike in 2011—Neel Gap, Kincora, Damascus just before Trail Days, and at the ATC HQ in Harpers Ferry. Each time he did something to help me: giving me part of my...

    I never got sick despite not filtering or treating anything from the tanks, cisterns, guzzlers, etc. in Southern California, but YMMV. Every one of them was functioning as advertised in the water...

    The grocery store in Julian, the Julian Market, appears to be open according to Google. That's about 75 miles north of Campo and I never heard of anyone having trouble making the hitch from Scissors...

    I think you have it right, OP ... poly-blend dress shirts from the thrift store. Even if you go through 5 of those over the course of the trail, you won't have invested nearly as much money as you...

    Sounds good to me. A Circuit can hold a bear canister, and a 25-degree bag + liner + full shelter like the Fly Creek will cover you for the whole trail on a normal-ish schedule. Can't comment on the...

    Snickers is still king in my book. I want to puke after 10 Clif bars, Kind bars, 3 Musketeers, etc., etc., but I've had at least one Snickers on almost every day of 5,000 miles so far and I'm not...

    98% of PCT long-distance hikers hitchhike at some point, usually alone. Some people, like me, are basically addicted to it. Don't be afraid of it, it's fun. From Odell Lake I don't think it would be...

    Did you wear socks with your Chacos on the AT? My only concern for you would be sun in the first 1,000 miles of the PCT nobo. I doubt your feet were ever really in the sun from Front Royal to...

    Useful post. I think I can translate: "I heard a guy quit somewhere in NorCal and was complaining about the heat."

    Hikers quit all the time, everywhere, on every trail.

    Not having any experience in SOBO PCT hiking, I'll come up with some reasons a fast SOBO hike could backfire, or at least be more challenging than a NOBO:

    No, poodle dog bush is much much less of a problem, due to hyper-awareness of it and ease of spotting/smelling it. You're not just going to stumble into it like you might with poison oak. And the...

    I vote a 1.5-person tent that you can squeeze into and get a tolerable night's sleep in rare cases, but that you could carry by yourself if one of you left the trail. Something like the "2-person"...
