The Pacific Crest Trail 2006...
The Adventure started May 15, 2006

Follow the adventure of Ben & Billy tackling the 2,650 mile Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail spanning from Mexico to Canada, linking California, Oregon and Washington. Ben and Billy hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 4.5 months from May 15, 2006 to September 25, 2006, 134 days.

The Pacific Crest Trail is the sister to the Appalachain Trail and the second of the Triple Crown (Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail). Both the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail were recognized as National Scenic Trails in 1968. The Pacific Crest Trail was officially completed in 1993.

The distance between Mexico and Canada only being 1,000 miles seems short in comparison to the Pacific Crest Trail stretching two and a half times that. Switchbacks, desert, snow, and fire take the Pacific Crest Trail journal deep into our daily trail life- from Ben's relentless bickering remarks to the picturesque snow-capped mountaintops we got lost trekking over.

Pacific Crest Trail Thru Hike Resupply Strategy

See the Tips & Tricks used to Thru Hike the Pacific Crest Trail. With only One Food Drop Box, we thru hiked the Pacific Crest Trail. We want to help those that follow; and let others know how we accomplished our thru hike. Food is a major undertaking for most thru hikers, but it does not need to be! You can hike the Pacific Crest Trail without any Food Drops, and with little trouble.

Pacific Crest Trail Resupply Box

We laid it out for you in a neat little table: Miles, Days to Hike section, Where we bought our Food, What we bought for Food, and How we would go about our Food Resupply on the next thru hike.
