That’s great thanks! Always looking for hiking friends. Love being in this community now. the fires are actually where I live and I was quite sick a couple weeks ago unable to breathe with dyspnea- I still managed to do a two day backpacking trip in Death Valley last weekend, (albeit at a very slow place between lung damage and insane heat even with highest altitudes), so that’s a plus. I can’t get any outdoor time right now though due to the fact it’s really bad outside and at time even ashes kicking about. cant wait to train again soon though- headed to Yellowstone soon for some fresh air lol.

I would like to plan a thru hike on the PCT starting April 2021. I just did my first BP trip in 4.5 years, & hadn’t even hiked in 3 years & very much need reconditioning lol. My life used to revolve around trails and that changes the last few years, (as well as years of injuries are now being felt); however I’m confident I could be ready for a 40+ year old slower paced (not snail but not the rabbit) trek. I’m wondering if there’s any similar folk whom may be interested in at least Starting together, if not attempting it all. I’ve done solo treks in the past but I do enjoy company (especially at night when things go “bump in the night”).
