    I’m jealous of anyone who has the time to make a thru. Hopefully, I’ll be able to afford the time in a year or 2.

    Interesting way of putting it. I could most likely afford the cost of doing a thru hike. But I canít afford the time away from family and work.

    What a well written article. Here's where you hooked me: " I opted to be ultra comfortable instead of ultralight..."

    You're realistic about the desert section and having watched a few videos on PCT hikers I'm stunned that you managed to hammock camp 75 percent of the time. You give a lot of good information in your article that I've not seen gathered together like that in one concise spot. I've bookmarked the embedded videos to watch later but wanted to tell you how impressed I was with the article itself.
    Cheers.

    I was lucky to work for about 6 years to get the time and funds so I used it to go see the US by foot. Good luck getting out there even if its just for a small trip!

    You could definitely most likely afford the money costs as its cheaper than most people estimate. The other costs are determining factors for sure.

    Thanks for reading and your feedback. The best scenery for videos in the desert is in the sections where you wouldn't even imagine finding hammock trees so what you see may be slightly skewed. I actually talked to others who had better luck than 75% but they did things like stopping early for a hammock spot while I either ground camped or hiked further sometimes not even finding a hammock spot.

    Straight out of Clayton.

    Most physical hike: Grandfather Mountain, NC. Aug 13.

    I don't need to make my pack lighter. I need to make my (_*_) lighter.
