I did it. I had three goals for this summer, and thank God, I was able to meet every one.
I met some awesome people, and got to experience some beautiful places.
I fought through smoke, asthma, and fatigue.
I had very little injury.
I learned a lot about myself.
By the numbers, I hiked 138 miles. I completed both Oregon Section C and California Section R.
I’ve completed the entire state of Oregon, and there is a new tat in my future.
I’ve completed my first thousand miles on the PCT. I’m pretty proud of that as well.
Most of all, I’m grateful to Steve, and to the boys, for their support and their belief in me, as I’ve pursued this crazy dream.
I don’t know what the future will hold, but I do know that, as I’ve hiked down the trail, Steve’s love has been the single most important thing to me. It doesn’t get any better than that.
