Inkings & notions
|Pacific Crest Trail|
I can hear the questions already. Why not? I believe everything happens for a reason and sometimes things don't require an explanation right now. The PCT calls for different reasons for each individual. I like a challenge. I love the outdoors. I love to travel. I love to explore. And more than anything, I'm on a new journey. This is just an extreme start.

However, my next challenge lies in the fact that I'm from Australia and have no one in the USA to handle sending my boxes to the trail (they can only be held for a month in advance). Yes, as most of you know, my brother is at the Houston Ballet HB2 company, but he's not a reliable source. He won't be following my trek the whole time because he will be on performance and rehearsal schedule. Generally, you are in need of someone who is up-to-date on your whereabouts, can do your shopping and send to the trail by the date you require. That's definitely not my little bro's current situation. So, I'm capable of packing 4 or 5 boxes when I arrive in Seattle, and sending them to all my resupply locations, but from then onwards, I'm a little screwed. However, I've chosen to use the resupply company called Zero Day Resupply who will resupply me from there until the Mexican border. Hopefully, they will be able to stock some of the food that I require.
