Well I have finnaly decided to do it. I will be traversing the entire 430 miles of the Oregon PCT. Unfortunately I can't take a month of to do it all at once, so I will be completing in a couple of years. I have completed sections of the trail but have never done a thru hike on it. I'm very anxious to get started but I know I won't be going any where with my current pack weight, I've got to get it down to about 30 lbs. I would like to think I'm ambitious enough to complete the entire PCT but to be honest thats a little scary. I plan on conditioning myself for the next couple of years on the Wonderland Trail and getting my daily mileage up to about 20 miles. I feel it would be a great life accomplishment, and besides the bragging rights would be the best, but that's not really why we hike now is it. If any one has any suggestions about other long (100 Miles+) trails for conditioning I would love to hear them.
