"Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see"
...... Mark Twain

And so it is for PCT thru hikers.

Trail Angels have become legendary from start to finish on the PCT. Providing transportation, shelter, food, water and kindness. They have become as much a part of the PCT experience as the desert, mountains and valleys.

Sponsors are a welcome source for gear and food items. Helping to defray the cost of five months of trekking from Mexico to Canada. A challenge not only of physical prowess, but of logistical planning and support. I will be highlighting sponsor related support during the course of my hike. Beginning with Art's Backpacking 360. Art Gavel is a hiking enthusiast and entrepreneur with huge amounts of backcountry experience. He has developed and supplied me with his light weight and sexy looking (yes, I will use this word) trowel. The CatHole UL.
