"We are looking forward to getting to town and then we are all going to watch the new Avengers Movie, town needs you know?" ♢#Humansofthepct ♢ Little Bite, Sundance, Giving Tree, Strider • • • This was the second time in a span of 9 days we ran into this trail family. • • • We first encountered Little Bite, Sundance ad Stride at Little Jimmy Spring after descending from Baden-Powell. • • • It was fun chatting with them as they were all on their first big long distance hike on the PCT. They were all excited and enjoying the process. • • • Giving Tree, featured earlier in this profile was someone who we met at the Mill Creek Fire Station and was just all positive energy. • • • What a surprise to see them at the water cache before getting to Tehachapi Willow Springs Road. • • • So good to see them one more time, even though we never saw them on trail again we hoped they stayed together throughout the trail. • • • Little Bite and Sundance hail from the northeast, Giving Tree from Oregon and Strider from Southern California • • • Be sure to follow their travels at: Little Bite and Sundance: @sunnyrivervt Giving Tree: @thedirtlessdirtbag Strider: @petersebeckis • • • #Happytrails • • • #PCT #pctstory #PCT2018 #pctclassof2018 #pcta #pacificcresttrail #trekthepct #thetrek #optoutside #getoutside #trailangel #trailamily #socal #PCTtrailangels #thegreatoutdoors #pacificcresttrail2018 #wander #travel #adventure #explore #travels #journey #wanderlust #wanderer #adventures #backpackermag #outside #socal #trailmagic
"Quick Strip...it's what people call me...it's in the name (wink wink)."- Quick Strip aka Magical Stripper ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • Right after the Aqueduct walk we ran into Quick Strip and Bandy Legs from #Connecticut • • • Obviously we had to ask about Quick strip's name and origin • • • Let's just say if he needs to change, or lose layers...he's an expert • • • Turns out another hiker saw it happen and was so surprised that they deemed him Quick Strip on the spot. • • • Bandy Legs though mentioned he should be called Magical Stripper • • • We won't choose, but what are your thoughts? • • • Wishing them #HappyTrails on their pct journey and maybe seeing them out East on our AT 2018 hike to finish calendar year Triple crown• • • Follow their hike @nick_broth & @aknah5 • • • #PCT #pctstory #PCT2018 #pctclassof2018 #pcta #pacificcresttrail #trekthepct #thetrek #optoutside #getoutside #trailcrew #pctstory #socal #PCTtrailangels #thegreatoutdoors #trailfamily #backpackermag #outside #desert #trailmagic #thruhike #longdistancehiking #travel #wander #adventure #explore #adventures #journey
"We've been doing this a long time, it's hard to give up." - Terrie ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • For anyone who has hiked the #PCT , plans on hiking or knows anything about the trail should have stopped or should stop at Casa De Luna in So Cal. • • • Terri and Joe are the gracious hosts, amazing trail angels and just great people • • • We first met Terrie and Joe in 2016 on our first thru hike and made sure we stopped by on our first leg of the Calendar Year Triple Crown. • • • We got even luckier this year as Terri was shuttling hikers back and forth from the highway to the Casa. • • • You all know the set up, couches, shade, giant sign in sheet (literally a giant sheet), rock painting station, a maze of camp sites, taco salads and the PCT famous pancakes • • • They have been doing this a long time and they may continue doing for many more years. But for anyone whose stayed and experienced this wonderful place we hope you took it all in • • • One day it may be time for them to pass the torch to someone else, will it be you? • • • A big thank you to Terrie and Joe for everything they've done and continue to do for the long distance hiking community • • • Be sure to follow them @casadelunaterrie & @casadelunajoe • • • #HappyTrails • • • #PCT #pctstory #PCT2018 #pctclassof2018 #pcta #pacificcresttrail #trekthepct #thetrek #optoutside #getoutside #trailangel #casadeluna #socal #PCTtrailangels #thegreatoutdoors #backpackermag #outside #desert #trailmagic
Oh wow I love this "Wake me up when it's all over, when I'm wiser and I'm older. All this time I was finding myself...didn't know I was lost." - Aloe Blacc ♢humansofthepct♢ • • • Sitting here in Mazama, WA, I have to look back a little bit. This second PCT thru hike has been a blur many hours of the day but Washington...you are something else • • • How do you put into words what hiking over 3000 miles is like...and yet know you aren't even half way to your goal yet? • • • Well the easy answer is you don't think about it. I can't say I don't think of it though. • • • These last miles on this trail will be time for reflection and keeping it together. • • • It's hard to describe the feelings I've had the last few days...literally I've gone through every known emotion and unknown emotion as we've gone up and done thousands of feet every hour • • • Mountains, water, snow, elevation, trees, green...this is my life my right now. • • • Life... a loaded four letter word. Choice...another loaded word. • • • I made the choice to live out of a tent, be outside and walk...and that's my life. • • • Thank you for following along, thank you for the support with the www.gofundme.com/8000milesto8000smiles campaign • • • Oh and a big shout out to @justinhelmkamp for coming out and meeting us on trail.

"You want to talk about some worse or uncomfortable trail moments...I had a Cactus thorn in my leg for 170 miles while hiking...yeah...not the funnest thing to write home about." - Giving Tree ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • While passing Mill Creek Fire Station we ran into Giving Tree from Ashland, Oregon. • • • We were chatting about the desert and another hiker had brought up their aches and pains and wondered if they could get through it • • • He wasn't boasting, but Giving Tree mentioned you could push through almost anything, it was up to you though. He mentioned how the Cactus thorn had gotten embedded and how it sucked but he got through it before getting help to remove it. • • • As far as all the folks we met this year on the PCT, Giving Tree was one of those hikers who had such positive energy and seemed to really be enjoying himself out there • • • Here's to him having a safe and fun rest of the hike • • • Be sure to follow his hike and adventure @thedirtlessdirtbag • • • #HappyTrails • • •  #keepitwild #keepitpublic #ProtectPublicLands #leavenotrace #photography #hyperlite #altrarunning #zpacks #oregon #smile #hikingram   #beards #hike #hiking #backpacking #backpackers #trekking #backpackermag #inspire #hikeon #dirtbag #wanderer #mexicotocanada #cdt2018 #AT2018 #trailcrew #vagabond #nomad
"Welcome to PCT Cribs with your main trail blazer The Prodigy. Let's take a look inside the new crib at BLYC..." - The Prodigy ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • I'm Anaconda now and we need a break before this next stretch where we won't be staying in town at all until quite a ways. • • • Throwback Tuesday to that time we were on the PCT last month and enjoying the new PCT Welcome Center at BLYC • • • Ask any long distance hiker and you'll know any chance they get to enjoy some R & R it is worth it. • • • If that rest comes in a beautiful spot with great amenities it's a plus. • • • Being on the CDT we won't be seeing many spots like this, which is okay. Every trail is different and not everyone goes at all the trail towns or stops • • • It is a good reminder that we all hike our own hike, we all have different experiences out here and that there are good folks that go out of their way to help hikers. • • • Remember to give back, ask to help where ever you can and pay it forward • • • Thank you @biglakeyouthcamp for your hospitality and trail love! • • • #HappyTrails • • • @palantepacks @roscoeoutdoor @mymountainiswaiting @dutchbroscoffee @pctassociation #PCT #pctstory #PCT2018 #pctclassof2018 #pcta #pacificcresttrail #trekthepct #thetrek #optoutside #getoutside #biglakeyouthcamp #oregon #calendaryeartriplecrown #cytc365 #calendartriplecrown #rei #longdistancehiking #pnw #pacificnorthwest #adventure #explore #adventures #travel #triplecrown #wanderlust #wander #cribs #dutchbros
#Repost @hikingprodigy • • • • • "You know how she got her name, she tore a ligament last year and kept walking until we got to the next town...that's why she's a tough cookie." - Navy Bean ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • Hiking toward Mill Creek Fire Station we leap frogged with a couple who had just lost a piece to their trekking pole. • • • Turns out this couple, Tough Cookie and Navy Bean were also a part of pctclassof2016. • • • They were back to do it all the way through this time as they had to stop in the Northern Sierras last time due to some injuries. • • • We also learned that after the trail they were going abroad to house sit in a villa for a few months and then would continue traveling and house sitting. • • • This time they'd sold their house, all their belongings and are all in on the trail and then traveling the rest of their lives. • • • As for their trekking pole they had to rig up a temporary solution before getting to Agua Dulce. • • • Hope they are enjoying their time on trail before their next adventure, definitely have us thinking of house sitting abroad too! • • • #HappyTrails • • • #PCT2018 #PCT #pacificcresttrail #pctstory #pctclassof2018 #pctig #trekthepct #pcta #california #thrupack #roscoeoutdoor #coalatree #camping #backpacker #adventures #mexicotocanada #wander #wanderlust #travel #adventure #explore #escape #travels #yolo #smile #8000milesto8000smiles

Who else wants this? ✔ "Two years ago we took the same photo...love this place...wish we didn't have to eat and run." - The Prodigy ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • A few days ago we left Cascade Locks with full bellies and after some wonderful time spent in this great trail town. • • • We got to catch up with @julesinthegorge and even got to try the hiker trash burgers! • • • Unfortunately we had to leave the next morning and start into Washington as our end date on the PCT is not as flexible as others...we have to get to the CDT fairly quickly afterwards. • • • Oregon came and went...the mosquitoes were the one constant.

"You know how she got her name, she tore a ligament last year and kept walking until we got to the next town...that's why she's a tough cookie." - Navy Bean ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • Hiking toward Mill Creek Fire Station we leap frogged with a couple who had just lost a piece to their trekking pole. • • • Turns out this couple, Tough Cookie and Navy Bean were also a part of pctclassof2016. • • • They were back to do it all the way through this time as they had to stop in the Northern Sierras last time due to some injuries. • • • We also learned that after the trail they were going abroad to house sit in a villa for a few months and then would continue traveling and house sitting. • • • This time they'd sold their house, all their belongings and are all in on the trail and then traveling the rest of their lives. • • • As for their trekking pole they had to rig up a temporary solution before getting to Agua Dulce. • • • Hope they are enjoying their time on trail before their next adventure, definitely have us thinking of house sitting abroad too! • • • #HappyTrails • • • #PCT2018 #PCT #pacificcresttrail #pctstory #pctclassof2018 #pctig #trekthepct #pcta #california #thrupack #roscoeoutdoor #coalatree #camping #backpacker #adventures #mexicotocanada #wander #wanderlust #travel #adventure #explore #escape #travels #yolo #smile #8000milesto8000smiles

This time I wasn't cold per se but still hungry haha. • • • Our life has become a cycle of walking, eating, doing our thing, eating some more, finding water, drinking water, determining a place to camp, aiming for.a place to camp, settling on a place to camp, eating more, thinking about eating more and sleep. • • • We are 1/4 way done with this Calendar Triple Crown attempt. Over 2000 miles hiked now since we started. • • • Thank you all again and again for the support and encouragement, it keeps me going in tough spots. • • • Thus far we've raised $2166 for the www.gofundme.com/8000milesto8000smiles campaign!

"It's my first time hiking out here and the weather has been hard to beat." - James ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • We met James near the cache after Scissors Crossing at the beginning of the desert. • • • He's from Jupiter, Florida. And before you ask, he does not know @jupiterhikes , he gets that a lot and is usually what people ask him. • • • And no he has no interest in being named another planet...though we haven't seen him in a month and a half. • • • James mentioned he's enjoyed the desert and knows it's not flat...which for some reason people still think every year. • • • Also, he mentioned there's a great beach in Jupiter and if we go there after our AT hike we'd be free to stay on his couch...we definitely might take him up on that • • • Follow his journey @jamesrozea • • • #HappyTrails • • • #palantepacks #zpacks #roscoeoutdoor #backpackermag #backpacking #trekking #wanderer #traveling #longdistancehiking #rei #jupiter #love #life #laugh #footpower #bliss #smile #backpackers #deserthiking #cdt2018 #ProtectPublicLands #keepitpublic #keepitwild #publiclands #nationalforests #at2018 #clevelandnationalforests #scissorscrossing
Awesome pic! 😀 "I may be on a stricter timeline than most other hikers. I start school in August so I need to be in Washington by July. That was the compromise with the parents." - Eric ♢#humansofthepct ♢ • • • Meet Eric, yup just Eric (for now maybe) from Chicago originally but also a graduate of the Claremont Colleges in CA recently • • • He studied neurological sciences and was accepted to the University of Texas Southwestern Health Sciences Graduate School in Dallas. • • • We met him just past the Bridge to Deep Creek and hiked together for several miles as we approached the hot springs on 4/7/18. • • • During his time in California for undergrad he'd hike parts of the #PCT such as Baden Powell, Deep Creek and a few other spots • • • So after college he decided, what better time to do the PCT? "I'm stl young and before I fully commit to my graduate studies I needed to do this." • • • His body took some time to adjusting to the miles and after a week off in LA he's back on the trail and ready to cover some miles. His hope is the snow won't be very high by the time he gets to the Sierras...a lot of us hope that. • • • Be sure to follow his hike @eric_monty48 • • • #Happytrails Eric • • • #pcta #pctig #pctclassof2018 #pct2018 #pacificcresttrail #pacificcresttrail2018 #pctstory #trekthepct #optoutside #rei1440project #wanderlust #wander #travel #explore #smile #thegreatoutdoors #hiking #camping #trailcrew #traillife #tentlife #backpacking #garmin #hikerhunger #hikeon Via :@hikingprodigy Follow me : @Hiking_lover_Smith #hiking #hikingadventures
