Occasional updates, reading recommendations, outdoor adventures, and much, much more (and less.)
I'm reading Cactus Eaters from firefly coffee shop on front street SC. Im thinking of rejecting a job offer to do this journey, and as a recent college grad, this would be considered stupid. I will be at Firefly for a few hours reading the book and doing some work. I would love to chat about the trail and how I am feeling about it. Coffee/bagel on me.Ben O
Wow! I am way out on the Westside at the moment and have no way of getting out there but yes, I'd be happy to talk this over -- for starters could you send me an email off blog? You can reach me at email@example.comSo many considerations here.
dan I am in similar situation contemplating the PCT any advice to offer
Anon, the main thing for me was committing to do the trail (the whole thing.) I was in a time of my life when I was easing my way out of something (a job) and setting aside time for the trail as a kind of pause/time to take inventory, much in the same way that people backpack through Thailand or Europe or, in some cases, go to grad school for something soul-building and not necessarily "practical." If that makes sense ...
thanks will be in touch
Sorry, just seeing your comment now. Glad to help.
