Worried? Concerned?

I know lots of family and friends are worried about my safety. So this is a post for those of you who would like to be a little more informed. See this as a resource post.

The Pacific Crest Trail Association.

The trail has been in existence for more than 50 years. It’s well known, and managed by the PCTA. The PCTA also puts out lots of resources and useful info that you can check out if you’re curious. Check out their website here:https://www.pcta.org/

People you need to know.

Karina – Trail name: Electrolyte. Hiking buddy. We are starting together, and will likely be the person I’ll be with the entire time. Check out her public blog at http://www.windroseadventure.com/ 

Ricky – “resupply manager”. That means he’s shipping things to me, and getting shipments from me. He will always know my current location and status. Check out his public Instagram at
