Last night I was talking to my mother about the PCT and how I really do plan on hiking the trail in 2017. She seemed pretty surprised, almost as if she did not quite believe me when I originally told her five days ago. I think now she sees that I am completely serious.
Anyways, I told her that she should walk it with me and the look on her face was priceless. I could see the gears turning in her head as she thought about what it would be like to hike 2650 miles. She looked at me as if I was the craziest person she had ever encountered and then let out a laugh.
She did not even have to say no for her point to be made!
