Want to document and share your hike with friends and family?
I've decided to take two days off trail to heal up this nagging calf. So I'm home for the weekend. It will give me time to heal up, chart out the next 3 legs, wash my nasty pack, smoke some ribs for the family and get ready for trail again. I got contacted by a retired Capt from the dept that I worked several decades with. He and I were friendly but never close (he was a Sgt and Lt when I worked for him as a ofc and agt). He got ahold of me on Instagram and offered to trail angel for me when I get to Big Bear, pick me up, house me, let me use his jeep for resupply AND...AND take me up in his private plane to see the area and "I can take you up and you can see what's coming up on your PCT journey". ?!?!?!? Are you kidding me? What an incredibly kind and generous offer. I told myself that I would keep myself open to any new experiences that the PCT had to offer and this certainty fits that category. So excited.
