PCT Daily Post

1 post per trail day is the goal.

Head over to the menu if you’d like to see my other adventures that don’t include my current thru hiking attempt!

If you’re wondering why I’m so sad to be getting off trail for a bit, this is why. See ya soon, friends. #pct #pctclassof2022 ...

The latest installment from “live updates from the trail”, and unfortunately the saddest.

I will be getting off trail for awhile. While urgent care did not see a fracture, there is significant muscle, tendon and tissue inflammation that requires serious rest. Instead of trying to push through a section that has limited bail out points and technical terrain, I am going to give my body the rest it needs to recover to prevent significant harm in the future.

I hope to get back on trail in July when my bubble will be hitting Oregon.

I love you all SO much and am so sorry to let you all down like this. As disappointed as you are, know I am 100x more heartbroken to literally see the Sierra and have to turn around.

(Also this feels like those dramatic YouTuber apology videos and I hate it)

A little video from the last ~200ish miles on the trail! I try to capture a bit of the magic, but it’s tough! #pct #pct2022 #pctclassof2022 #thruhike ...
