    Hey, I'm Righteous.
    I also like hiking!
    I'm planning a SOBO hike, starting maybe sometime around July 1st. Depends on the snow situation.
    See you in the mountains!

    Heya! I'm Tim. I don't have my trail name yet - hoping to acquire it on the PCT this year. My wife Betty and I are starting NOBO mid-April.

    -Ghost-, thru-hiked the AT in 2011 and psyched for the PCT. Im actually from Morgantown, WV Cobble so just about an hour south of you. Also looking for an early May start.

    Anyone have input on start dates? I am currently planning a May 1st start date. I feel I hike a bit faster than most people generally (did on the AT) and didnt want to get to KM too early. Was looking to average approximately 25MPD. Which thanks to postholers planner will put me at KM on June 1st. The snow this year is insane! But I am afraid to push my start date back even further into May.

    Why? At that pace I wouldn't hesitate pushing back to May 15th with your expected speed. In 2011 I started on May 21 and if I was faced with the same snow year and gpsoing the same pace I would have done a June 1st start and I doubt it would have impacted by finish date by much. Keep in mind that in a big snow year you will rapidly catch up,with earlier starters since you will have less snow all the way along the way.

    Thanks Malto! I guess my only concern was the heat in the desert. But it seems that is variable and can depend on the year moreso than simply the start date. Yes, May 15th or around there is looking more likely for me.

    Hi

    My name is Ben and I also do not have a trail name. Thinking of starting the usual time late April early May as I have some route finding and snow skills. Anyone else?

    Zman here. 2013 AT thru-hiker. Managed to get a slot for the end of April. What a hassle getting a permit!!! Nothing like a crashing website to increase your anxiety!

    Looks like May 15th is my starting date. Going to be a struggle to reach Oregon by the eclipse, oh well.
