Hiking Solo

Mesa Verde 2001?
the dangers of hiking alone - no one to watch your back

One questions that has been asked many times is if I have a partner to hike the PCT with.

The short answer is no... but it's not the whole answer.

ADZPCTKO (Annual Day Zero Pacific Crest Trail Kick Off), the PCT kick-off event happens at the end of April and is attended by over 600 people. Of those, over 200 will start north at the same time I do.

Additionally, there's thousands of people who hike sections of the PCT, either in short backpacking trips or day hikes.

So chances are, I won't be hiking by myself unless I really really want to. And sometimes that really might be nice!
