It must be the beautiful full moon thats making me not be able to settle. It’s 1am I Can’t sleep and I have to be up at 6am! Missing the trail, our trail fam and friends and the daily picking of huckleberries. This first picture was taken last full moon where we camped in possibly the BEST camp site ever!
I’ve Really been struggling the last few days. Im not gonna lie but luckily I have chip by myself to look at pictures of the trail and remember the good times. @jasondibb

Mt Shasta was looking mighty sexy as a storm front moved in. I made it to town before the rain and hail 🙌
An enormous thank you to all the wonderful souls out there who maintain the water caches along the PCT. Without you- this trail would be a whole lot more punishing ❤️ 📷 @ryangraver #trekthePCT #thetrek
While many of our community based #volunteer
groups are packing up their tools for the season due to the snow, some groups are just getting started.
Volunteers with the #PCTAs
Trail Gorillas are back at work after a summer-long break. Live in SoCal? Care to join? Many of the Southern California sections are in major need of repair after this year’s wildfires. Lots of clearing brush and building rock walls.
Check out our upcoming projects over at PCTA.org/volunteer!

Enjoying this wonderful October evening on the back porch with a book instead of inside in front of the boob tube - this book is amazing! This guy is such a great and hilarious story teller - I’m low key in love with him already! It’s the story of George coming to the US from New Zealand to hike the PCT. I can’t help but read it in an accent and have laughed out loud more times than I can count at some of his descriptions of America! Highly recommend picking this one up if you’re an adventurer or just enjoy entertaining real stories! #bookstagrammer #backporchsittin #itsfallyall #pct #hiker #wanderlust #bibliophile #bookhoarder #gooutside

Hey guys, we have some news...So we found out from the studio a few days ago that we’ve officially been renewed for Season 2 of Paul’s Culinary Theater. When we first started I had no idea this was going to blow up they way it did, but since then, we’ve had HUNDREDS of views and SEVERAL satisfied guests. I owe thanks to a lot of people but specifically my partner and Director of Photography @charmel_pat
and you all, the fans! I wouldn’t be the megastar I am without you. Season 2 is for you!
Working during Nursing School
•My Instagram Stories is lit up with responses from people who work/worked during nursing school!
•While NS instructors will tell you you shouldn’t, lots of students themselves will tell you you CANT. Especially on social media. And while that is THEIR truth and from what I’ve seen most students don’t work, this narrative often scares pre-nursing students into making a decision not based on their own personal academic abilities and lifestyle.
•Let it be known that everyone’s situation is different. While it is obviously ideal, better for your grades, and better for your sanity to not work while in Nursing School, some people have families to support, bills to pay, or don’t have a support system to fall back on. And student loans can only help so much.
•Let it be known that it CAN be done! You may not be the top of your class. You may lose your social life completely. Your relationship with your significant other may feel the strain. But it absolutely can be done, if necessary. There are about 30 people so far in my inbox sharing their stories to prove it.

People often ask what my favorite part of the PCT was and it is a complicated question. There’s so many aspects of being on trail that I loved: the colors and smells, the people, the views, the surprises, how ripped my legs got, the simplicity (and sometimes challenge) of just walking everyday. But I think my truly favorite part was this: the feeling when you’re climbing up a pass, and it’s steep and maybe you’ve been climbing for miles or maybe just a mile but it’s been tough. Maybe you’ve been looking at the top of this pass for what seems like forever and you kinda just want it to be over but then you’re finally about to get to the top and the excitement and anticipation and wonder of what’s on the other side hits you. What totally epic view am I about to see? Then suddenly it doesn’t seem so steep and adrenaline kicks in and somehow you’ve only got a few more steps to the saddle...and then you see it. That reward, that view, that feeling of being on top of the world, sometimes literally, was all worth it. ...this haphazard description definitely doesn’t do this feeling justice. If someone knows a word for this please let me know.
This is just one of multiple passes where I experienced this. I think this is Cloudy Pass in Washington. Much of Washington was rainy and cloudy with low visibility so this one was a nice treat.

Headed home to Minnesota on Thursday. Been one hell of a trip. Can’t wait for our next one. I already miss our home on wheels... #inversion #mthood #pct #oregon #pnw
With you, I am safe.
With you, I am seen.
With you, I am heard.
With you, I am understood.
With you, I am loved.
With you, I am free.
These past two weeks have been filled with explosive growth, understanding, compassion, and love. This speaking tour has challenged me in ways I didn't know I could be or needed to be challenged. It has caused me to redefine relationship dynamics (@chaninicholas
warned me, thanks #venusretrograde
!) and establish boundaries for myself where they have been desperately needed for decades. It has introduced me to some of the most incredible people on the road, new faces in the audience that quickly become our family. With this family, we have hiked our feelings, cried, shared intimate and personal stories over trails and meals, and we have shown them how our little corner of the world works: show up without your mask, be free from judgment, and share your stories.
Yesterday, I had the first panic attack I've had since I left the startup in May. I went from having near-daily (sometimes multiples per day) attacks to none, and yesterday rocked me. I forgot how much a panic attack can shred my system.
Until yesterday, I thought I knew the capacity of my love for you.
Until yesterday, I thought I understood the depth of your love for me.
I severely underestimated both. Yesterday you showed all the way up for me, in ways I didn't know I needed and in ways you hadn't demonstrated before, and I want every single person who sees this to feel this in their bones when I say:
YOU ARE WORTHY OF LOVE THAT:
❤️ Encourages you.
💛 Challenges you to be your best.
💚 Feels easy.
💙 Reminds you of your worth, talents, and inherent beauty.
💜 SETS YOU FREE.

Let’s get real for a minute here. Hiking the PCT is not all prancing through the woods and beautiful scenery. It is also brutal 30+ mile days and hot grueling water carries through the desert. It is prying your frozen gloves off your fingers so you can thaw your tent stakes enough to break them down. It is clutching your stomach on a mountain at 12000 feet forcing back vomit because you know you didn’t carry enough food to replace the lost calories. It is rationing those last precious swallows of water in 100 degree heat and praying the next cache isn’t empty. The trail is indifferent to your pain and your sleep deprivation and your exhaustion. Many strong competent hikers were defeated by the Sierras. I made it out weak, bleary and malnourished. It took 2 straight days of eating and sleeping in my tent to recover myself enough to take on the desert. With the help and support of some of the wonderful people I have met on trail, I am rested and ready to tackle the last 450 miles of this trek. Because several of you have asked already: yes, there will be a tiny pot calendar this year! I’ll start taking orders just as soon as I get off trail in about a month. I know it’s been a while since I posted any pots, so here’s a whole bunch to make up for it. Happy trails!
Saw this little guy at the airport. It reminded me of hiking on the PCT in the desert. I miss the desert and the PCT.
I’m so close to having all my gear set up for the #pct
this next #spring
. 🤗 #pctclassof2019
-Ursus Americanus ultra lite #bearbag
weight 2.2 oz without cord—to keep all my food organized and to tie up in trees when we hit bear country 🐻
squeeze water filtration system — mostly do what ive seen #thruhikers
in previous year do, attach to #Smartwater
bottles and drink straight, unless it’s REAL grimy and then I’ll boil and double filter! Can’t afford to get #sick
on the #Trail
-Swing lite flex black umbrella weight 7.3 oz — this will definitely help me from over heating when hiking through the desert or getting #sunburnt
as I am a #fairchild
plus it’ll be great to chill under when taking breaks and as well as there will be rain out there so anything to keep me dry!
Everyday is a struggle to battle the inner and outer negative dialogue that happens all around us everyday. You can’t make everyone happy, so you might as well do exactly what you want everyday to satisfy your soul. I spend to much time in a windowless office daydreaming about next year. ☁️✨🌿
If you scroll back far enough in my feed, you’ll find this photo from years ago. We went camping in January in a sno-park and stayed in a 3-walled cabin with a wood burning stove. We drank whiskey, played dice, had wood chopping competitions, and hiked sections of the PCT in deep snow. It was hygge af.
