08 Summer Wrap Up

Ok, so I may have lied about a mountain to sea bike trip.  Matter of fact, i did lie.  It's not going to happen, but that's not to say that it will never happen.  I've had to actually hold down a more than steady job this summer.  That means 5 days off all summer including weekends.  For a thru-hiker, that's a lot of hours.  I have not been able to "get away" all summer, but next summer is a different story. Warpzilla, PCT, 2009.  That's all there is too it.  Any nudging/convincing bandanna that a 2009 PCT is a good idea is encouraged.  Otherwise, I'mgoing solo.  Mowgli, who you may recall from our AT pics in our VT/NH sections will be attempting a thru-hike.  I am sorry to disappoint on the promises of a 2008 adventure, but its just not in the cards.  I've began preparations ie gear lists, resupply schedules and a budget for the PCT next year.  If this does not happen next summer, then you have every right to never read this blog again.  I will be heading to Charlotte this coming Saturday, the 16th, and I will be balancing school and work in order to make the PCT happen next summer.  If you or anyone you know lives in California, Oregon, or Washington State please let me know, and all help will be greatly appreciated.  More updates are to come...

Warpzilla Out.

No admission of guilt needed here. If you don't have a summer job, then there's no money. And without $ nothing happens!
We'll get the west coast c'tacts warmed up for the '09 PCT.
Jay said he ran into u at the store, sorry I missed it.
Study Hard!

I am considering it...

For the record, I am all for hiking the PCT. I just am not sure about the fast pace again.
