My Adventure Story
We started the John Muir Trail on June 14, 2009 excited and ready to experience the Sierras on a 20 day journey. Little did we know the kind of adventure that we were in for. What we thought would be a long but manageable trekking tour of the Sierras turned into a mountaineering adventure, due to the over abundance of snow that lingered through out the mountain range. The fact that PCT hikers deal with these kind of conditions every year is quite amazing.... and humbling!!! We truly had to dig deep and work together so as to: a) not get lost and b) not get injured. This truly was the adventure of a lifetime and feel honored to have completed such a journey with my teammates Nanners and Ripstop. However, the next time I try to complete the John Muir Trail, I think I will wait until August, because it is "just not sensible to complete the JMT before July!!!"
Thank you to everyone for your support and keeping track of our progress. I'm glad the SPOT worked, because we were really never sure :)
