Hello,
My name is Brandon, I am from St. Louis Missouri. Next summer I have an opportunity to thru hike one of our long trails and I have decided on the Pacific Crest Trail. Unfortunately for me I do not know anyone who is in a position to get up and leave there lives behind for 5-6 months. I am 23 in good shape and love to hike, mountain bike, backpack, anything outdoors really. I have started my planning and preparation a year ahead of time to make sure the hike is a success. I have been doing a lot of online research and have recently started reading a few PCT books "The Pacific Crest Trail Hiker's Handbook" by Ray Jardine and I also have the "Pacific Crest Trail Data Book" to help plan even farther. Any advice from any veterans of the trail would be nice.
Thanks.

Hey Brandon! The PCT has captivated me for quite some time as well. I would check out No-Way Ray's book too! I'm 23 as well, hail from NH, and have grown up in the Whites. I had planned to do the PCT this summer, but due to a back injury had to postpone it. My best friend is attempting a solo thru-hike right now; just spoke to him yesterday and he's around Big Bear and loving it right now! I'm certainly open to the idea of the PCT in '13, but also wanted to let you know that I'll be doing a SOBO thru-hike of the AT starting July 12. Keep me in mind either way! Cheers.
