One of the highlights of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail is ADZPCTKO. (Annual Day Zero Pacific Crest Trail Kick Off). This is a weekend of food and festivities related to hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. Current hiker past hikers and everyone in-between are welcome to enjoy this wonderful celebration.
My experience of ADZPCTKO included volunteering one night for the cooking. Which meant nothing more than manning one of the many stoves and stirring the beans every now and then. The event is quite the production and I’m always amazed at hone everyone and everything seems to come together among what appears to always be disorder.
My friend Joe also came out to visit me the last day of the kick off. We hiked a few miles together and Joe brought me garbage bags so I had some form of rain gear. I’ll have to post these photos later. No I was not fully prepared for this hike and the cold in the desert.
I also ran in to Lunar, who I hiked with in 2007 on the Appalachian Trail. Bag Lady was there along with Chuck Norris and Tigger. Old friends and acquaintances. It was a great time and something I’ll always remember. Among the pictures is also the woman I met and fell in love with. Can you find her? Do you know here?
Thanks for stopping By
Can you find Fuzzy Monkey in this 2010 group photo?
