Hi There! Thank you for checking out my hike page! It's been a dream to go on a long hike every since I was in Nepal in 2001, and this year I'm excited to make it a reality. I'll be hiking the Pacific Crest Trail beginning in April, and ... more

Pack Shakedown

Home - Mile 0 - Apr 16th, 2016

Thanks you Potential178 (Paul) for the honest and patient pack shakedown! We managed to shave a few ounces and even add a few essentials. I still have a few luxury items I'm not quite willing to part with just yet. Maybe the blistering hot hard desert will teach me a few lessons about lightening my load. Luxury items, by the way, include 2 (not 1) pairs of underwear, my merino & my down hat, 1/2lb camp shoes, my wind/rain jacket and rain poncho, bandana and a small towel (also a pee rag - eww!), wet wipes, pencil crayons and my little buddies - mini black pug figurine and small buddha, the last two I consider essentials. I could absolutely live without these items or just one of them, but I'm just not ready yet!
For those interested, I will eventually be posting a link to a full list of my gear. There's some pretty nifty things in there!
Ok, enough about gear....back to tackling all the last minute to-do's!
walking in love,
Stacy

Hey, Stacy - just to encourage you, I've made a part payment of my pledge on your behalf. You seem to be doing great, and though I hear that you are feeling the stress, we both know that you will push through it, and soon it will be October and your life will have changed forever. Do you have any idea how many folks are rooting for you, holding you in their hearts, and willing you onwards?
Enjoy each moment!
