as some of you may know....

....as some of you may, or may not know, i am planning on thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in April of 2012. it is a huge decision with lots of planning and preparation to be done before April even gets here. For those of you not truly aware of what the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is, basically, i will be hiking for nearly 5 months straight, for a distance of nearly 2700 miles, and from the border of US/Mexico to 8 miles across the Canadian border. This blog will hopefully serve as my Trail Journal throughout my adventure and I plan on keeping everyone updated with my progress both pre-hike, and during hike through this outlet, as well as on twitter/facebook as most social networks are all linked together these days anyway....

i need to give a HUGE thanks to my family and friends who have already committed to, and began helping support me throughout this adventure.

My parents for encouraging me to be myself, and follow my dreams, and to embrace the wilderness and experience the great outdoors.

My brother for encouraging me to get out and get it done, and my girlfriend Erica for basically taking on the duties of support logistics and detail. if anyone finds themselves wanting or needing to get anything to me at anytime during my hike, you will be dealing with Erica...

thank you guys so much for your support and i cant wait to get on the trail...



more to come.
