Hiking. Friday , April 27th , 2018 - 22:20:28 PM
Why would anyone want to spend five months walking from Mexico to Canada? Most through-hikers get asked that question over and over. It‘s like asking a mountain climber why do you climb mountains. For me it started when I was active in the singles group of my church in Manhattan Beach a suburb of Los Angeles. Jason one of the class members started leading monthly hikes for the group usually in the Angeles National Forest in the San Gabriel Mountains just north of Los Angeles.
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.
Pants. If you‘ve ever found yourself hiking on the trail with the pants chafing between your legs then you‘ll know that getting the right pair of trousers is vital. Polypropylene is the usual material used for hiking trousers because it is comfortable and quick-drying. Aside from being comfortable I like my hiking pants to have plenty of pockets for storing granola bars or almost anything that you need quick access to on the trail.
