Mariette Beaudoin. Hiking. April 24th , 2018.
I started my hike on April 28 at the Mexican border. I was trying to finish in four months and I had already purchased my return ticket to Peru based on that schedule. The first week went well and then I started getting blisters. I was also hiker faster than most of the others so I was passing a lot of people but not spending much time with them and wasn‘t making any friendships with other hikers. After two weeks I had to take a few days off to let the blisters heal. I also realized that I needed to slow down and spend time with other hikers if I wanted to make friendships which was one of my goals for the hike. After leaving Big Bear CA I did slow down and started hiking with four other people. Two of them were section hiking and one had to stop due to injury but I hiked with go-Big the other one most of the way to the Oregon border.
When I found out that it went from Mexico to Canada I thought that would be something fun to do someday. In the years that followed I joined an adventure racing club and the outdoor activities progressed to longer harder and more frequent. In the summer of 2002 I went to Peru on a two-week hiking mission trip. That turned into a three-year stint the following year. In 2005 knowing that my term would be up in January of 2006 I started making plans to through-hike the PCT. The timing all came together no job no mortgage or other expenses and some money in the bank from selling my house when I went to Peru.
